In one of the most exciting and accessible explanations of The Theory of Relativity in recent years, Professors Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw go on a journey to the frontier of 21st century science to consider the real meaning behind the iconic sequence of symbols that make up Einstein's most famous equation, exploring the principles of physics through everyday life.

Having visited the National History Museum with my children last year, it became apparent to me that the similarities between the worlds species was much closer than I had imagined and that our origins are from the same source.

In addition to this, Brian Cox has been known to me because of a past association with CERN and TED... and my chess playing, brandy drinking companion and physicist neighbour, Pascal.

This book has provided a great insight into our origin, the world of physics and the theories and discoveries that have been achieved in our immensely short (space) time within this creation. If like me, your mind never pauses for information and insight, I can highly recommend this book.
