Einstein his life and universe

The first full biography of Albert Einstein since all of his papers have become available shows how his scientific imagination sprang from the rebellious nature of his personality. Biographer Isaacson explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk--a struggling father in a difficult marriage who couldn't get a teaching job or a doctorate--became the locksmith of the mysteries of the atom and the universe. His success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marveling at mysteries that struck others as mundane. This led him to embrace a morality and politics based on respect for free minds, free spirits, and free individuals. These traits are just as vital for this new century of globalization, in which our success will depend on our creativity, as they were for the beginning of the last century, when Einstein helped usher in the modern age.--From publisher description.

Published to commemorate the centenary of Einstein developing his theory of general relativity, Einstein : the Life of a Genius reveals the man behind the science, from his early years and experiments in Germany and his struggle to find work, to his marriages and children, his role in the development of the atomic bomb and his work for civil rights groups in the United States.
