Product description

Review

"A monument to sound scholarship and graceful style.... Accurate, witty, and clear as brook water, it is a work against which future scientific biographies will be measured.... Anyone with an interest in Einstein should give this splendid book a try."--The New York Times Book Review

"A coherent account of almost everything of scientific significance that Einstein did.... Unique and indispensable."--Science

"Particularly valuable as the first thorough study in one accessible volume of all of Einstein's major contributions to science.... Remarkably clear as well as authoritative."--The New York Review of Books

"A sympathetic but clear-eyed view of his life and work...examined mainly in his own plentiful papers, supplemented by a remarkably wide list of unusual sources.... A fine book."--Scientific American

"An outstanding biography of Albert Einstein that one finds oneself reading with sheer pleasure."--Physics Today

"The best biography of Einstein."--Jim Holt, The Wall Street Journal
