TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 14 March 2015
In 1905 Einstein produced five papers. One of them, he told his friend Besso, was "revolutionary". And so it proved to be. After the electrodynamics one, physics would never be the same again.

Here are these papers from that miraclous year all collected under one roof.

I have done this review today on Einstein's birthday, 14th March. A curiosity is that, in American chronology this is "3/14". But 3.14... is the number Pi. How strange.

Its nice to read Einsteins actual work rather than someones interpretation of it. It is sometimes difficult to follow as there is little to no explanation of the maths, it is stated and you either know it or you dont. However, it is well worth buying this book if you want an insight into how he worked and dont mind reading a few sections twice.

I do not find this work leading me to an understanding of relativity, which was my goal. The author states that Paper 4 leads to demonstrating E=MC2, but it is not there to my eye. I have in the past seen a succinct derivation.
