Description: Ask people what they think of when they hear the name "Einstein, " and chances are they'll say "E=mc2" -- the equation Einstein formulated to define his famous theory of relativity. But how many of us actually know what that theory -- and other principles of physics -- actually mean? For the vast majority who don't, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Einstein's Universe is an accurate yet fun and easy-to-understand breakdown of the major theories and advances of physics, what they mean, and how they relate to our physical world -- then and now. It provides fascinating insights on the difference between special and general relativity (which Einstein identified in that order), the search for a Unified Field Theory that dominated the latter half of his career, photoelectric theory (which won him the 1922 Nobel Prize), and quantum mechanics, a field he pioneered -- and famously rejected later in his life. Along the way, the book also looks at these theories in the context of Einstein's tumultuous life, which included an academically inauspicious childhood, two failed marriages, and a longtime commitment to such often controversial movements as pacifism, Zionism, and Communism.
