This is a fascinating exploration of the history and development of famous equations and the scientists and mathematicians who came up with them. The book focuses on the knowledge the equations give us, on the process of discovery the inventors took to arrive at their solutions and on the way our understanding of the world was changed. Little to no attempt is made to work through the calculations; thus, the book is readable and enjoyable by anyone with an inquiring mind.
