Einstein: The Man, the Genius, and the Theory of Relativity (Great Thinkers) (Hardcover)
Written by bestselling author Walter Isaacson, Einsten is an introduction to, and celebration of, the scientist whose name is synonymous with ingenuity and intelligence.
From his remarkable theory of relativity and the famous equation No one has contributed as much to science in the last century as Albert Einstein. Drawing on new research and reproducing documents only recently made available, Einstein reveals the process behind the work and the man behind the science: his experiments in Germany, his marriages and children, his role in the development of the atomic bomb, and his involvement with civil rights groups.
