Summary:
Future generations may well refer to the first half of the 20th century as the "age of Einstein" because of his outstanding contribution to modern thought. In this book the author approaches Einstein's career through the three basic themes in his work - the special theory of relativity, the general theory of relativity and gravitation and the quantum theory.

In this book the author approaches Einstein's career through the three basic themes in his work - the special theory of relativity, the general theory of relativity and gravitation and the quantum theory. Studying these, the author traces the stages of both Einstein's own life in science and the growth of modern scientific awareness. His account is both lucid and evocative, and goes a long way towards helping the layman to a fuller understanding of Albert Einstein and the central issues of modern physics. -- Publisher description."@en ;
