Masters of the Universe
Albert Einstein and Kurt Gödel

The 2/28 issue of the New Yorker has a terrific article entitled "Time Bandits", about Albert Einstein and Kurt Gödel.  Well it is really a review of John S. Rigden's new book, “Einstein 1905: The Standard of Greatness", and Rebecca Goldstein's biography “Incompleteness: The Proof and Paradox of Kurt Gödel”.  (Both of these books seem interesting and well worth reading.)  The review is a wonderful overview of these two amazing men and their improbable friendship, as well as their shared quest to understand the nature of time.
