Synopsis

Synopsis

E=mc2 was born in 1905, the brainchild of Albert Einstein.



In this lucid and brilliant book, one of the best popularizers of science illuminates one of science's most complex concepts. Ranging widely from Exit signs in theatres to the future fate of the earth, from smoke detectors to black holes and the structure of the atom, David Bodanis delivers a scintillating and colourful account of the real meaning of E=mc2.


From the Hardcover edition.

Praise

Praise

“Bodanis’s account is exhilarating….This book filled me, once again, with delight at what numbers, together with a free-ranging intellect, can achieve. E=mc² is to be treasured because, in its small compass, it reveals so much of what makes science tick….a few more books like this and perhaps our policy makers will remember what science is about” —The Globe and Mail
