Albert Einstein reinvented the universe more than 100 years ago. His theory of relativity is still highly topical, as the recent proof of gravitational waves has shown. But what exactly did physics’ pop star discover, how were his theories confirmed and why would no navigation system work without them? Simply Einstein! carries you off into the wondrous world of time travel, strange quantum effects and the universe that is bent out of shape, and explains the ingenious ideas of this odd talent of the century as smartly and simply as possible.
