Publisher Description

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.

Enjoy

It is a well written book. Sometimes he gets away from the equation and to side stories. Some are facinating and others, not so much. All an all it gives you an understanding of what E=mc2 really means. Good listen in the car.

Pleasant hystorical anecdotes.

My wife and I have enjoyed the first 5 hours of this book, so far, in the car. We like the writing style of David Bodanis, and the voice of Dan Cashman. We have been mildly disappointed at the lack of scientific insight articulated in this book, but I suspect that was a deliberate omission for the intended audience. This book is about the people, not the concepts.

E=mc2

This book is David's best. Get it. Especially if you have longed to understand this equation. And even more so if you have a child that is interested in science.
