"This argument is amusing and seductive, but for all I know, the Lord may be laughing over it and leading me down the garden path." -- Albert Einstein in a letter to a friend

When E=mc2 was born in 1905 Albert Einstein was unsure of what he had accomplished. In fact, he had done nothing less than open the door to the inner structure of the universe.

Ranging widely from Exit signs in theatres to the future fate of the earth, and presenting colourful portraits of the scientists behind the discoveries, Bodanis delivers a scintillating account of the real meaning of E=mc2.
