Share

Description

Blending science, history and biography, Einstein's Heroes takes you on a journey of discovery about the phenomenon of mathematics - humanity's universal language and one of our most amazing accomplishments.

At the book's centre are the brilliant scientists who inspired Einstein, particularly James Clerk Maxwell, Michael Faraday and Isaac Newton.

Together Maxwell and Faraday settled a centuries-old physical dispute, which Newton had left in his wake, establishing mathematics as the ultimate arbiter of physical reality.

With the talent of a great storyteller, Arianrhod weaves warmly observed biographies into a passionate argument for the beauty and universality of the language of maths.

Einstein's Heroes is an enthralling exploration of the special magic of science, and the lives of some of its most brilliant exemplars.
