520    "At the core of Einstein's general theory of relativity 
       are a set of equations that explain the relationship among
       gravity, space, and time--possibly the most perfect 
       intellectual achievement of modern physics. For over a 
       century, physicists have been exploring, debating, and at 
       times neglecting Einstein's theory in their quest to 
       uncover the history of the universe, the origin of time, 
       and the evolution of solar systems, stars, and galaxies. 
       In this sweeping narrative of science and culture, Pedro 
       Ferreira explains the theory through the human drama 
       surrounding it: the personal feuds and intellectual 
       battles of the biggest names in twentieth-century physics,
       from Einstein and Eddington to Hawking and Penrose. We are
       in the midst of a momentous transformation in modern 
       physics. As scientists look farther and more clearly into 
       space than ever before, The Perfect Theory engagingly 
       reveals the greater relevance of general relativity, 
       showing us where it started, where it has led, and where 
       it can still take us"--|cProvided by publisher.
