Banesh Hoffmann, Helen Dukas – Albert Einstein, Creator & Rebel

Written by a friend and scientific collaborator with Albert Einstein, this remarkable study is a model of what a biography of a scientist should be. On these pages, we come to know Albert Einstein as the backward child; the academic outcast; the reluctant world celebrity; the exile; the pacifist; the philosopher; the humanitarian; the tragically saddened father of the atomic bomb; and above all, the unceasing searcher after scientific truth. At the same time, we are given a superb and essential introduction to the creative process and the concepts that shattered an age-old view of the universe and ushered in a revolution whose reverberations continue to touch us all.

book mythical

I listened to this book on my way to work this morning and I guess I was excepting more than what I could have gotten just by looking him up on Wikipedia. I felt like there was so much more that could have been added to make this book more complete…for example: his home life, who his mentors were/are, more of his philanthropy….there are many avenues that could have been shared.

I have listened to several books by Kevin Theis and normally enjoy his work, however, this book it was almost as if he was shouting and I could picture him wagging his finger at me.
