Customer Review

on June 27, 2003
I really lucked into finding this book. It's one of those books I recommend to everyone--in fact, four of my friends are reading it right now because I've been raving about it. :) As a word person, math and science have always made me nervous. But David Bodanis has a real gift for taking complicated concepts and using real-world examples to make them easy to understand and entertaining to read. The storytelling approach he uses to show how discoveries by different physicists contributed to E=mc2 is fabulous. His grasp of human nature and motivation is amazing. I loved his characterizations of everyone, from Voltaire to Faraday to Einstein himself. This book is captivating and compelling reading, even for those of us who never got higher than Cs in Chemistry. :)
