Brian Markle, January 1, 2011 (view all comments by Brian Markle)
Alice Calaprice has produced what is truly the ultimate source of quotations from the wise rebel, Albert Einstein. It is more than simply a collection of quotations as it provides a four dimensional view of the man: scientist, philosopher, humanist and inquisitive child.
