Description

“A thought-provoking critique of Einstein’s tantalizing combination of brilliance and blunder.”—Andrew Robinson, New Scientist

Never before translated into English, the Manimekhalai is one of the great classics of Indian culture.

Reviews

“The book’s quixotic approach—retelling Einstein’s story by homing in on his blunders—makes for good intellectual entertainment. . . . [It] kept me eagerly turning the pages.” — George Johnson, Los Angeles Times

“A wonderful story that is well worth taking the time to read....We get a short course in this history of modern physics, one that is well-written and entertaining as well.” — Alan S. McRae, Mathematical Reviews

“Recounts [Einstein’s] chronicle of errors in clear and engaging prose, giving us in the process a short course in the history of modern physics and a witty and provocative account of the subject’s life.” — Darrin M. McMahon, Wall Street Journal
