really liked it

Einstein is known as the father of Relativity, as well as of the famous formula that links mass to energy. Schrödinger is known for his cat "thought experiment" and for his wave equation. But did you know that Einstein was also one of the fathers of quantum mechanics? And that both men looked at finding an equation to unify gravity and electromagnetism?

This book is not a biography of either men, though aspects of their lives are presented. It presents how both collaborated, how their friendship fell and how they resumed their collaboration, as well as how their beliefs fitted the evolving physics.
