Publisher's Summary

The product of research around the globe and interviews with dozens of prominent scientists, God's Equation discusses the latest developments in cosmology, the study of the nature of the universe. Using Einstein and his theories to explain the links between relativity and cosmology via Einstein's "cosmological constant," Aczel tells us it is almost as though Einstein were God's mouthpiece, revealing the most fundamental truths about our larger environment, truths scientists are just now confirming. And yet Aczel reveals a side of Einstein - the man - no one else has brought to light. Aczel is the first to have translated certain letters of Einstein, in private hands until recently. These letters cast a new spin on Einstein's relationship with other scientists and his early efforts to prove his revolutionary theory that a strong gravitational force will make light bend.

Can't Get Into It...

I listened to this book for three days worth of commute, but was never able to become involved with the story. It felt very textbook rather than entertaining. I was much more engaged by the novel "A Short History of Nearly Everything."

Good Book

I enjoyed this book and felt I learned alot about Einstein and how he revolutionized physics. The relativity concepts were well presented and easy to understand. I could even see myself listening to this again. Highly recommended.
