Summary
"For Albert Einstein, 1905 was a remarkable year. It was also a miraculous year for the history and future of science. In six short months, from March through September of that year, Einstein published five papers that would transform our understanding of nature. This unparalleled period is the subject of John Rigden's book, which explains what distinguishes 1905 from all other years in the annals of science and elevates Einstein above all other scientists of the twentieth century."--Jacket
