Publisher's Summary

E=mc2: It may be Einstein’s most well-known contribution to modern science, but how many people understand the thought process or physics behind this famous equation? In this collection of his seven most important essays on physics, Einstein guides the listener step-by-step through the many layers of scientific theory that formed a starting point for his discoveries. By both supporting and refuting the theories and scientific efforts of his predecessors, Einstein reveals in a clear voice the origins and meaning of such significant topics as physics and reality, the fundamentals of theoretical physics, the common language of science, the laws of science and of ethics, and an elementary derivation of the equivalence of mass and energy. This remarkable collection allows the general reader to understand not only the significance of Einstein’s masterpiece, but also the brilliant mind behind it.

Pure Einstein but not an introduction

The best part of this book is hearing Einstein’s writing on the subjects of Relativity, the nature of science, and the issues of integrating General Relativity with Quantum theory. Yet there are now many other texts that discuss these subjects with much more clarity and much more depth, and have many more years of thought and experiment behind them. The narration is straightforward and quite clear. I enjoyed this listen, but it seems to me this is not the best place to start learning about relativity or the incompatibilities between quantum theory and relativity.

No PDF

I had to search online for information/equations that would help me follow. It's inconceivable that anyone would release this as a audiobook without providing a PDFS to the reader.
