Einstein: The man, the genius, and the Theory of Relativity

Description

Einstein is an introduction to the man who has contributed more to theoretical physics than anyone else in the last 150 years. Written by the first author allowed access to his private papers, and with fascinating imagery and accounts from his friends and family, the private aspects of Einstein's life are illuminated just as much as his science. From Einstein's youth and his experiments in Germany, followed by his struggle to find work at the Swiss patent office, and his marriages and children, Walter Isaacson goes on to detail the awarding of the Nobel Prize for Physics, Einstein's role in the development of the atomic bomb and his work for the civil rights of African Americans. Einstein celebrates a scientist whose name is synonymous with intelligence and ingenuity.
