From the Back Cover:

"Since Maxwell′s time, physical reality has been thought of as represented by continuous fields, and not capable of any mechanical interpretation. This change in the conception of reality is the most profound and the most fruitful that physics has experienced since the time of Newton."
Albert Einstein

"He is easily, to physicists, the most magical figure of the nineteenth century."
Times Literary Supplement
