E=mc2 is one of the defining formulas of the twentieth century yet few of us really understand what it means or appreciate the ramifications of such a simple looking formula. In this book physicists Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw attempt to correct this situation by deriving and explaining Einstein's famous formula using little more than the Euclidean geometry we all know and love from our days at school! This isn't a book for physicists but for anyone who wants to know more about possibly the most famous formula of all time.
