A non-fiction account of 5 of the most famous equations which helped humanity to reach the moon, fly and o control electricity. I was given this book and I was torn between reading it, I have never read something like this and it was surprisingly easy to keep up with. An although non fiction there were parts which I found hard to believe them to be so, the familiarity with each scientists are impossible, but it brings sympathy toward them.Overall, the book is an easy start toward science and math and the life of each of the scientists, who could have known Newton, Einstein and the others had fears like us? That they were too human beings and they felt lonely or sad? I recommend it to anyone who struggles/hates math or science so they get a piece of hte story behind.
