    DescriptionProfessors Brian Cox (from the hit TV series "Wonders of the Solar System") and Jeff Forshaw believe science is beautiful. Here they explain why in this fascinating and thought-provoking audiobook, exploring the principles of physics through examples found in everyday life. 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. This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60 per cent of the author's work and as low as 30 per cent with characters and plotlines removed.

    Review quote
    "A thrilling experience of passionate comprehension." Ann Druyan, Cosmos television series "This is the book for everyone who has never understood why astronauts returning from Mars would discover that they're 20 years younger than when they set out. That the speed of light is absolute makes it a tad tricky, but Einstein sorted it and so will you when you've listened to this." The Guardian (audiobook review) "(The authors have) blazed a clear trail into forbidding territory, from the mathematical structure of space-time all the way to atom bombs, astrophysics and the origin of mass." The New Scientist"
