Einstein’s Cosmos: How Albert Einstein’s Vision Transformed Our Understanding of Space and Time

Rs. 2,290.00

Michio Kaku

 

‘One of the most sympathetic and also scientifically interesting biographies of Einstein ever to appear in print… a fascinating read’ –Focus

 

‘Kaku is a skilful and genial populariser… While this is fully a biography, succinctly revisiting Einstein’s difficult childhood and unpromising early career, his two marriages and his emergence as a 20th-century cultural icon, the guiding thread is undoubtedly the evolution of his ideas’ –Sunday Telegraph

 

“Thanks to Michio Kaku, you don’t have to be an Einstein to understand Einstein. Einstein’s Cosmos weaves together Einstein’s life and science the way Einstein himself wove together time and space.” –Dr Ken Croswell, author of Magnificent Universe and Magnificent Mars

 

‘Michio Kaku beautifully interweaves the story of Albert Einstein’s career with Einstein’s stunning insights into cosmology, from relativity and black holes to dark energy and the search for a unified theory of all the forces in the universe’ –Donald Goldsmith, author of The Runaway Universe and Connecting with the Cosmos

 

‘A memorable book… a gem’ –Good Book Guide

 

‘It’s started – the worldwide frenzy to mark next year’s centenary of Einstein’s “miraculous year”… If you want to know what all the fuss will be about, read Michio Kaku’s authoritative offering’ –New Scientist

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 to dare to scale the heights he reached.

In this enlightening book Michio Kaku reasseses 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 =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 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.
