Comments Everything's Relative: And Other Fables from Science and Technology

  • Frederick Bingham

    This book is about many scientific and technological advances of the past. The author investigates whether, for example, Edison invented the lightbulb, if Darwin came up with the theory of evolution, whether Einstein discovered relativity. In many such cases, the person credited with a discovery or invention is not the only or even the first person to get the idea.


  • Ana

    An extraordinary review over some of the most important advances in science and technology written in such a way that forces you to travel in history and live the soap opera of science. This book should be mandatory in every programme of science and/or technology. I loved it


  • Gandhar

    It's a collector's book. Very well written and informative without being boring. It should be part of school/college carricula.
