This book includes: A Short History of the Universe by Matt Visser, Discovering the Age of the Earth by Hamish Campbell, and Schrodinger's Cat by Tom Barnes. In 1905 Albert Einstein, 26, is working at the Swiss Patent Office as a poorly paid technical expert. In his spare time he pursues a passion for physics. The papers he writes are extraordinary and will revolutionize the way we see the world and lay the foundations of modern physics. The Elegant Universe of Albert Einstein brings together a collection of intelligent and entertaining essays by world rewned scientists and historians that explore the lead-up to Einstein's astonishing discoveries, and their world-shaking aftermath.
