Albert Einstein: A Biography Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Folsing has also written biographies of Galileo and Roentgen. He focuses on how Einstein's personality and background combined with his intellectual powers to produce the scientific discoveries he is known for. He steers between hero worship and prurient curiosity, and balances between explanations of the science and narratives of Einstein's life. Translated from Albert Einstein: Eine Biographie published in 1993 by Suhrkamp Verlag.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
