What I read was interesting and informative, but he starts by saying he wants to get away from biographies of the physicists and do a biography of the equation, then proceeds to flesh out the biography of Einstein, Farraday, Lavoisier, and later Oppenheimer.

What a wonderful book for those of us who want to understand the equation but do not want to take a phyics course to do it. The author gives a informative back round of the beginnings of the concept to the ongoing understanding of it. Great read.
