Einstein: His Life and Universe by Walter Isaacson
With Einstein: His Life and Universe, biographer Walter Isaacson explores the life, and the forces that shaped it, of one of the most influential men of the 20th century, Albert Einstein. Partly based on new information from recently released papers and letters, Isaacson not only shows both the genius and flaws that made up the man, but he explains Einstein's theories in laymen's terms. He debunks some of the myths surrounding Einstein (he never failed math in school) and highlights his impact on not just the scientific world, but the world as a whole. Einstein: His Life and Universe has received positive reviews with the Rocky Mountain News saying, "One of this book's strengths is the way in which Isaacson gently corrects our hero-worship, while at the same time demonstrating that Einstein, warts and all, was truly a towering figure of our time, a man of extraordinary intelligence who, though prey to some of the usual human flaws, was, well, a hero."
