A Stubbornly Persistent Illusion: The Essential Scientific Works of Albert Einstein

by

A Stubbornly Persistent Illusion: The Essential Scientific Works of Albert Einstein Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With commentary by the greatest physicist of our time, Stephen Hawking, this anthology has garnered impressive reviews. PW has called it “a gem of a collection” while New Scientist magazine notes the “thrill of reading Einsteins own words.” From the writings that revealed the famous Theory of Relativity, to other papers that shook the scientific world of the 20th century, A Stubbornly Persistent Illusion belongs in every science fans library.

About the Author

Stephen Hawking has become a “scientific celebrity” of sorts, ever since his A Brief History of Time was published. He has been described as the “most intelligent man in the world today,” according to the Chicago Sun-Times and as “the scientific heir to Einstein, Newton, and Galileo” by People magazine. He lives in Cambridge, England.
