REVIEWS FOR EINSTEIN'S TELESCOPE
...cogent review of this intriguing topic...So much more has been revealed since I wrote a book on dark matter 16 years ago...There's still no happy ending, but as Gates so aptly demonstrates, describing how science works toward a solution provides 99 percent of the enjoyment for any reader.

Einstein's Telescope...provides food for thought for both expert and general readers. Through Gates's ambitious book, everyone will appreciate the puzzles of the dark Universe -- and the power and beauty of gravitational lensing.
An enthusiastic update on the search for the materials that make up the universe. Splendidly satisfying reading...
Evalyn Gates's Einstein's Telescope is a testament to what can be done when beautiful mathematics is applied to astronomy. Gates uses one of Einstein's great ideas to weave together mathematics, astrophysics, and cosmology into a coherent and, dare I say it, compelling narrative that maps out the frontiers of contemporary research.
LIBRARY JOURNAL STARRED REVIEW
Gates writes with a freshness and clarity that make complex ideas such as relativity, lensing, black holes, and the cosmic web understandable. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries of all sizes.
Presenting complicated topics concisely and clearly, Gates explains what we know about the universe, what scientists wish they knew, and what's at stake -- the fate of the universe itself.
