Einstein's Cosmos : How Albert Einstein's vision transformed our understanding of space and time

Author(s): Michio Kaku

Popular Science

An insightful new book putting Einstein's work in a contemporary context 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 dare to scale the heights he reached. In this enlightening book Michio Kaku reassesses Einstein's work by centering on his three great theories - special relativity, general relativity and the Unified Field Theory. The first yielded the equation E = mc 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 gives 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 intense search to fulfill Einstein's most cherished dream, a 'theory of everything', he is recognised as a prophet who set the agenda for modern physics. About the Author: Dr. Michio Kaku is Henry Semat Professor of Theoretical Physics at the City University of New York
