Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A definitive study of one of the 20th centurys greatest minds, this authoritative and accessible biography of Albert Einstein examines the appeal and importance of the brilliant physicist, presenting the simplicity at the heart of some of Einsteins greatest discoveries and explaining how his ideas have continued to influence scientific developments. The main narrative is supplemented by 11 essays written by notable scientists and scholars such as Stephen Hawking, Steven Weinberg, and Philip Anderson, and Einsteins own voice comes through in the form of extracts from his writings. The book also explores Einsteins life outside of science, including his encounters with contemporaries such as Charlie Chaplin and Franklin Roosevelt, and is augmented by an exceptional array of personal photographs from the Albert Einstein Archives at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
