    From 1+1=2 and Pythagoras' theorem to the work of Einstein and Heisenberg, Crease tells the stories and personal struggles behind the creation of the most fundamental, powerful and influential equations. He also considers what each equation reveals about the cultural and historical background that produced it and the effects, often unforeseen by their originators, which these pithy distillations of knowledge have had on later generations.
