Five Equations that Changed the World: The Power and Poetry of Mathematics. Michael Guillen.

Hey, my friend Steve told me this book was a “page turner.” After wrestling with microbiology, the Wolbachia bacteria, and how insects incorporate bacteria into their cells, I thought we needed a lighter, faster read. The book unravels the equations that have led to the inventions that characterize the modern world. Eistein’s famous energy equation lead to the creation of the nuclear bomb. Others in the book are the mathematical foundations for the moon landing, airplane travel, the electric generator — and even life itself. Named the Best Non Fiction Book of 1995 by Publishers Weekly.

Our library has three copies, but you can buy used books for under $3 plus shipping. It’s available on Kindle and iBooks.
