Description

Albert Einstein es uno de los cientificos mas importantes de la historia y un icono del siglo XX. Como funcionaba su mente? Que le hizo un genio? Como era el ser humano detras del personaje publico? En la primera biografia completa de Albert Einstein escrita con acceso a todos sus archivos, Walter Isaacson logra un extraordinario retrato del personaje y de su epoca y un fascinante relato de su vida. A partir de la correspondencia privada de Einstein, Isaacson cuenta como un funcionario de patentes imaginativo e impertinente (un mal padre con un matrimonio complicado, incapaz de conseguir un empleo en la universidad ni un doctorado) fue capaz de desvelar los secretos del cosmos y comprender los misterios del atomo y del universo. Su creatividad estaba ligada a su rebeldia, y su exito se baso en cuestionar las verdades aceptadas y en asombrarse ante cuestiones que otros consideraban mundanas. Asi llego a una moral y unas ideas politicas que pasaban por el respeto a las mentes libres, los espiritus libres y los individuos libres. Su fascinante historia demuestra la relacion entre creatividad y libertad. Esplendida, un gran trabajo de investigacion con mucho material inedito. Una obra fundamental y definitiva. Amir D.
