An eminent physicist and professor, George Gamow also maintained a unique gift for creating the complexities of science available to a wide audience. In Gravity, he takes an illuminating look at three of the towering formations of science who opened many of the enigmas behind the laws of physics: Galileo, the first to take a close glance at the procedure of free and provincial fall; Newton, founder of the vision of gravity as a versatile force; and Einstein, who suggested that gravity is no more than the curvature of the four-dimensional space-time continuum. Designed with the author's own drawings, both technical and fanciful, this extremely reader-friendly book concentrates particularly on Newton, who designed the mathematical system known today as the differential and integral calculus. Readers antipathetic to equations can skip the conference of the elemental principles of calculus and still execute a highly acceptable grasp of a intriguing subject.
