In order to this, rather than concentrate on one protagonist, he tends to juggle two or three and touches upon a great many other historical figures. The Day without Yesterday fell short of my expectations, but possibly because my expectations were so high after having read The Sensorium of God , in which Newton, Halley and Hooke vie for protagonism. While true that nowadays he is generally as little appreciated as Robert Hooke, Hooke was an eminent and fascinating polymath. From a history of science viewpoint, it certainly would make much more sense to pit Einstein against, say, Niels Bohr.

Bohr appears in the novel, and his part in the important controversy with Einstein about Quantum Theory is certainly not downplayed. The first and foremost is that is is astronomy, not nuclear physics or the physics of matter, that is the center stage of the trilogy.
For another, in the book of Genesis it says that God created light and matter together and then Einstein discovered The Bible does not teach us science. We must never again have theology pitted against science. Your confusion comes from the fact that you conflate the two. Science requires mathematics and proof, religion requires belief and faith. Each of us must decide on the balance. There will be those who live their whole lives in doubt, looking for proof.
It stated: science can purify religion from error and superstition; religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes.
Each can draw the other into a wider world, a world in which both can flourish. Observations have a purity about them, whereas theories are always a matter of interpretation. May 15, Rachel rated it liked it. I enjoyed this, but not as much as the other books in the trilogy. I felt a bit rushed and I felt spent too much time focusing on personal aspects of Einstein's life and less about his work. Still an enjoyable read though.
May 31, Randall rated it it was amazing. The work primarily focused on the more familiar work of Albert Einstein and the less familiar George Lemaitre and also delves into their personal lives with a credible fictionalized account. Many other famous scientists of the time are worked into the plot including Max Planck, Arthur Eddington, Edmund Hubble, The period covered is from World War I until the 's with the increasing rise of Naziism in Germany.
Einstein's special and general theories of relativity are already behind him. Lamaitre realizes that embedded in the math of Einstein's theories is the notion that the universe is expanding implying that there is a beginning of time.
Einstein refuses to believe this and also the young theory of Quantum Mechanics. He instead, dedicated the remainder of his life to searching for a grand unified theory to refute these notions, which of course he never found.
The exploration of Einstein's failed marriage and fraught personal life, simply show that like all of us, he is supremely human. I do believe that the smartest and most accomplished people in this world tend to sometimes be the most difficult people. Dr Clark's study of the character behind the genius is what really sets this work apart. Definitely worth reading even to the non-technical person who cannot understand complicated math or physics.
