Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ronald W. Clark's acclaimed biography of Einstein, the Promethean figure of our age, goes behind the phenomenal intellect to reveal the human side of the legendary absent-minded professor who confidently claimed that space and time were not what they seemed.

Here is the classic portrait of the scientist and the man: the boy growing up in the Swiss Alps, the young man caught in an unhappy first marriage, the passionate pacifist who agonized over making the Bomb, the indifferent Zionist asked to head the Israeli state, and the physicist who believed in God.

Review:

"Clark not only brings Einstein alive, but also the scientific and intellectual issues." Los Angeles Times

Review:

"Applauded for its precision as well as its perception." Chicago Tribune

Review:

"Encyclopedic! Vivid and readable." New York Times Book Review

Review:

"A fascinating description of the career and substance of a genius." Christian Science Monitor
