Few figures loom as large as Albert Einstein in our contemporary culture. It is truly remarkable that a man from such humble beginnings, an unemployed dreamer without a future or a job, who was written off by his professors as a hopeless loser, could to dare to scale the heights he reached. In this enlightening book, Michio Kaku reasseses Einstein's work by centring on his three great theories: special relativity, general relativity and the Unified Field Theory. He first yielded the equation E =mc2 which is now such a fixture in our culture that it is practically a ubiquitous slogan. But the subsequent theories led to the Big Bang theory, and have changed irrevocably the way we perceive time and space. Michio Kaku offers a new, refreshing look at the pioneering work of Einstein, giving a more accurate portrayal of his enduring legacy than previous biographies. As today's advanced physicists continue their search to fulfil Einstein's most cherished dream, a 'theory of everything', he is recognised as a prophet who set the agenda for modern physics.

What really happened during Galileo's momentous 1632 trial for heresy? Many will be surprised to learn that Galileo was a lifelong, devout Catholic, and that the Inquisition made no factual dispute of his claims. Drawing on his intimate knowledge of Italian and Renaissance history, Dan Hofstadter vividly recounts the proceedings and just what was at stake. He sorts through intricate webs of patronage, examines the technology of Galileo's instruments, and reviews the cultural climate to explain why Galileo incurred such strident opposition. His telescope's 1.5 cm eyepiece made the device hard to use, leading some who tried it to denounce it as a scam. His descriptions of the heavens upset centuries of traditional understandings - from Dante's perfect image of the moon to the carefully organized measurements of astrology. The account is also one of mighty egos: Galileo the obstinate truth-seeker on the one hand, and his powerful detractors like Pope Urban VIII on the other. Ironically, the pope was a patron of the arts and sciences, and even a good friend of Galileo. But Hofstadter suggests that like many others, he simply could not see - or refused to see - the truth that we do not occupy the center of the universe.

NOW A MAJOR SERIES 'GENIUS' ON NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, PRODUCED BY RON HOWARD AND STARRING GEOFFREY RUSH Einstein is the great icon of our age: the kindly refugee from oppression whose wild halo of hair, twinkling eyes, engaging humanity and extraordinary brilliance made his face a symbol and his name a synonym for genius. He was a rebel and nonconformist from boyhood days. His character, creativity and imagination were related, and they drove both his life and his science. In this marvellously clear and accessible narrative, Walter Isaacson explains how his mind worked and the mysteries of the universe that he discovered. Einstein's success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marvelling at mysteries that struck others as mundane. This led him to embrace a worldview based on respect for free spirits and free individuals. All of which helped make Einstein into a rebel but with a reverence for the harmony of nature, one with just the right blend of imagination and wisdom to transform our understanding of the universe. This new biography, the first since all of Einstein's papers have become available, is the fullest picture yet of one of the key figures of the twentieth century. This is the first full biography of Albert Einstein since all of his papers have become available -- a fully realised portrait of this extraordinary human being, and great genius. Praise for EINSTEIN by Walter Isaacson:- 'YOU REALLY MUST READ THIS.' Sunday Times 'As pithy as Einstein himself.’ New Scientist ‘[A] brilliant biography, rich with newly available archival material.’ Literary Review ‘Beautifully written, it renders the physics understandable.’ Sunday Telegraph ‘Isaacson is excellent at explaining the science.
