In 1905, Albert Einstein revolutionized modern physics with his theory of relativity. He went on to become a twentieth-century icon-a man whose name and face are synonymous with "genius." Now, at last, ordinary readers can explore Einstein`s life and work in this new For Dummies guide. Physicist Carlos Calle chronicles Einstein`s career and explains his work-including the theories of special and general relativity-in language that anyone can understand. He shows how Einstein`s discoveries affected everything from the development of the atom bomb to the theory of quantum mechanics. He sheds light on Einstein`s personal life and beliefs, including his views on religion and politics. And he shows how Einstein`s work continues to affect our world today, from nuclear power to space travel to artificial intelligence.
