Energy is at the heart of physics and yet no book exists specifically to explain it, and in simple terms. Tracking the history of energy has the thrill of the chase, the mystery of smoke and mirrors and presents a fascinating human-interest story. Moreover, following the history provides a crucial aid to understanding: this book explains the intellectual revolutions required to comprehend energy, revolutions as profound as those stemming from Relativity and Quantum Theory.
