Einstein's heroes : imagining the world through the language of mathematics

"Einstein's Heroes blends science history and biography to take you on a journey of discovery about the phenomenon of mathematics - humanity's universal language and one of our most amazing accomplishments." "It uses as its axis the lives and work of the brilliant scientists who inspired Einstein particularly James Clerk Maxwell, Michael Faraday and Isaac Newton. Together Maxwell and Faraday settled a centuries-old physical dispute, which Newton had left in his majestic wake and established mathematics as the ultimate arbiter of physical reality."--Jacket
