About this Item

With 3 plates and several text illustrations. Original cloth and dust jacket in very good condition, price clipped; interior very clean. With the bookplate of Arnold Thackray. First British edition. Intended as an explanation of the totality of Einstein's accomplishments for the layperson, the publication of this extraordinarily successful work was also used in an attempt to find Infeld a university position (he eventually ended up in Canada). According to the preface, "the book is a simple chat between you and us. You may find it boring or interesting, dull or exciting, but our aim will be accomplished if these pages give you some idea of the eternal struggle of the inventive human mind for a fuller understanding of the laws governing physical phenomena.".
