Easy Lessons in Einstein:a Discussion of the More Intelligible Features of the Theory of Relativity / With an Article by Albert Einstein and a Bibliography Edwin Emery Slosson
Think Like Einstein: Top 30 Life and Business Lessons from Einstein: Ivan Fernandez
Albert Einstein will forever be remembered as one of the world´s greatest minds. His achievements are numerous, and his life story is an incredible one. Einstein lived in many places around the world, and left a huge footprint behind. In this audiobook you will discover all about Albert Einstein. You will learn all about his early beginnings and his childhood. As you will find out, Einstein was not believed to be a genius at all during his younger years. He was quite misunderstood and developed quite slowly. As Einstein grew older, his incredible abilities became apparent. This audiobook details his earliest theories and published papers. 1.

THE PHENOMENAL BESTSELLER ´There´s a book I´ve been carrying around like a small Bible, Seven Brief Lessons on Physics´ - Benedict Cumberbatch ´With the publication of this million-selling book, Rovelli took his place with Stephen Hawking and Richard Feynman as one of the great popularisers of modern theoretical physics´ - Sam Leith, Spectator Everything you need to know about modern physics, the universe and our place in the world in seven enlightening lessons These seven short lessons guide us, with simplicity and clarity, through the scientific revolution that shook physics in the twentieth century and still continues to shake us today. In this mind-bending overview of modern physics, Carlo Rovelli explains Einstein´s theory of general relativity, quantum mechanics, black holes, the complex architecture of the universe, elementary particles, gravity, and the nature of the mind. Not since Richard Feynman´s celebrated Six Easy Pieces has physics been so vividly, intelligently and entertainingly revealed. Translated by Simon Carnell and Erica Segre
Einstein´s steadfast refusal to accept certain aspects of quantum theory was rooted in his insistence that physics has to be about reality. Accordingly, he once derided as spooky action at a distance the notion that two elementary particles far removed from each other could nonetheless influence each others properties - a hypothetical phenomenon his fellow theorist Erwin Schrodinger termed quantum entanglement. In a series of ingenious experiments conducted in various locations - from a dank sewage tunnel under the Danube River to the balmy air between a pair of mountain peaks in the Canary Islands - the author and his colleagues have demonstrated the reality of such entanglement using photons, or light quanta, created by laser beams. In principle, the lessons learned may be applicable in other areas, including the eventual development of quantum computers. 1. Language: English. Narrator: L. J. Ganser.

These seven short lessons guide us, with admirable clarity, through the scientific revolution that shook physics in the 20th century and still continues to shake us today. In this short, playful, entertaining and mind-bending introduction to modern physics, Rovelli explains Einstein´s theory of general relativity, quantum mechanics, black holes, the complex architecture of the universe, elementary particles, gravity, and the nature of the mind. In under 100 pages, readers will understand the most transformative scientific discoveries of the 20th century. Not since Richard Feynman´s celebrated best seller Six Easy Pieces has physics been so vividly, intelligently and entertainingly revealed. Carlo Rovelli is an eminent physicist with an extraordinary ability to write about complex topics in a lucid, clear prose. His book was top of the best-seller charts in Italy for months and has sold over 200,000 copies since publication in November. He is the head of the Équipe de Gravité Quantique at the theoretical physics department of Aix-Marseille University. It has sold in over a dozen languages. 1. Language: English.

Think it´s difficult to get into Harvard University? Try Vita Post Mortem Academy, a prestigious high school where John F. Kennedy teaches a class called ´´American Ghost Stories´´, Albert Einstein grades science tests, and history´s most brilliant and deceased minds make up the rest of the teaching staff. Not a problem for Jules Winklevoss, one of the few who can see spirits. Getting into school was a cakewalk, but Jules learns not all spirits are engaging and inspiring teachers. Fourteen years ago, Jules´s family thwarted an evil spirit´s rise to power. Now, the evil spirit wants revenge on all Winklevosses, beginning with Jules. As if evil spirit problems aren´t enough, add best friend drama, unattainable boy crushes, and homework to the mix, and needless to say, high school is going to be dreadful. Jules is determined to protect her family and keep herself alive, even if that means delving into the world of the dead. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Timothy Burke.
