Inhaltsangabe: The author recounts the the stories of the people and the discoveries that led to the five most powerful and important scientific achievements in human history. In doing so, Dr Guillen reveals the secret world of mathematics. It was through the brilliance of these five fascinating people (Isaac Newton, David Bernoulli, Michael Faraday, Rudolf Clausius and Albert Einstein) that we were able to harness the power of electricity, fly in aeroplanes, land astronauts on the moon, build a nuclear bomb and understand the mortality of all life on Earth. The author brings to life the times in which each man grew up, and reveals the political debates, social upheaval, religious sanctions, family tragedies and personal ambitions that contributed to each man's inevitable place in history.
Über den Autor: Dr Michael Guillen teaches physics and mathematics in the Core Curriculum Program at Harvard University. He was born and raised in Los Angeles, and now lives just outside Boston.
