Science at its best!
Reveals the human side of science and mathematics by highlighting the very real-world challenges that were overcome by these five men. The author personalizes the context in which these highly inquisitive and determined individuals overcame many challenges to provide the world with the keys to technological advancement. The book is a quick read and an interesting adventure. The author puts the reader right in the middle of these discoveries, as they are being made. Once finished, you'll feel like Isaac, Daniel, Michael, Rudolf, and Albert are all old friends with whom you have shared a special part of life.

Five Equations that Changed the World
I definitely recommend this book. It is affordable and easily worth it. The book is mainly about physics and chemistry. Each chapter is about a totally different scientist/philospher's life. What's very interesting about this book is that the author gets very deep within the scientist/philospher's personal life. He explains theories very well such as Bernoulli's principle and Newton's theories of gravity. Also, what's very interesting is the fact that Guillen, the author, mixes the book with theology (fascinating.) In conclusion I rate this book an easy 5 star, if I could I would rate it 6 star!!! Definitely go for this book if you are interested in the subject of science.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
