Thinking Like Einstein by Thomas G. West

Book Description

West investigates the new worlds of visual thinking, insight, and creativity made possible by computer graphics and information visualisation technologies. He argues that, with the rapid spread of inexpensive and powerful computers, we are now at the beginning of a major transition, moving from an old world based mainly on words and numbers to a new world where high level work in all fields will eventually involve insights based on the display and manipulation of complex information using moving computer images.
