THE SPECIAL AND THE GENERAL THEORY. This book was published in Albert Einstein's Lifetime. Albert Einstein; 14 March 1879 to 18 April 1955 was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics alongside quantum mechanics. While best known for his mass-energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation"), he received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics, for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect. The latter was pivotal in establishing quantum theory.
