"Wow! Einstein would have loved this book. It's a great thriller, it has a sure feel for politics, and the science is both fun and solid." (Walter Isaacson, author of Einstein)
This book has physicists as unlikely participants in a race against terrorists and idealist to find Einstein's unpublished work. The premise of the story is interesting but the action is somewhat predictable and there is not much detail of the actual scientific principles involved. A somewhat entertaining story if you like this genre.
