Slim volume outlining at a popular level what E=MC2 means, how it came to be, and how its been applied in practical and theoretical physics.    Mildly fun, mildly informative. I now understand that energy equals mass, and just how simple and powerful the formula is.

A wonderfully lucid route to a basic understanding of Einstein's famous equation. You'll also learn a lot about physics and the vicious rivalry that has dogged the profession, dooming some great minds to obscurity for decades. This is a book I would recommend to every person interested in the basic laws that define our universe. Incidentally,it would also be an excellent read for brighter younger students, that might spark an interest in them to pursue a career in science.Jerry
