Summary
Provides an intimate, personal portrait of the eminent physicist and traces the origins, development, and impact of his revolutionary scientific theories
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Having the advantage of knowing Einstein personally during the last nine years of his life and having access to some of his 50,000 pages of letters and science papers, the author fills many gaps about what we know of Einstein's life. It deals with his interest in philosophy, his concern with Jewish destiny, and his opinions of great figures from Newton to Freud. Also depicts the state of physics at the turn of the century and how Einstein transformed the field.
