Old wine in a nice new bottle
on June 20, 2005
The idea opf presenting Albert Einstrein's own popularization of his ideas alongside an essay setting his magical year in context is absolutely brilliant, but I can't understand why the book cover doesn't make the Einstein connection clear. John Gribbin (and Mary) does his usual great job of simplifying the science, with every single paper of the five published in 1905 explained. It even turns out that special relativity wasn't the most important! The free DVD is also a really neat bonus. Whether you think of this as a book with a free DVD, or a DVD with a free book, it is fantastic value.
