Description Description

Albert Einstein was an unparalleled scientific genius whose ideas and theories were so shockingly revolutionary, he changed the way the Universe was imagined on multiple occasions. A prodigy in his 20s and a Nobel Prize winner, Einstein was not only a brilliant physicist, but also a human rights campaigner, a political activist and the iconic archetype of the mad professor that still leads to our obsession with the man behind the world’s most famous equation, E=mc2

30-Second Einstein provides you with a day in the company of a colossus from the world of science, and you will soon have his whole story – both his scientific attainments and his extraordinary life – in your head. With each page packed full of essential information, the 50 engaging entries get you to grips with his work, life and legacy, from atom to atomic bomb, at approximately the speed of light.
