Imagine you are fluent in a language so powerful that when you write it down it mysteriously takes on a life of its own, beyond your thoughts or control. A magical language of prophecy, with which you can accurately describe things you cannot see, or even imagine. Einstein's Heroes blends science, history and biography to take you on a journey of discovery about this phenomenon- mathematics - humanity's universal language and one of our most amazing accomplishments. This book also unveils the human face of mathematics and physics, using as its axis the lives and work of some of the brilliant scientists who inspired Einstein. In describing their quests, conflicts and collaborations, Einstein's Heroes gives an engrossing insight into the language of numbers which is so much part of everyday life.
