Einstein: His Life and Universe by Walter Isaacson

[ Edited ]
Another Breakthrough Bio from Isaacson

Book Cover Image: Title: Einstein: His Life and Universe, Author: Walter Isaacson Buy It From the author of the acclaimed bestseller Benjamin Franklin: An American Life, this fascinating chronicle is the first full-length biography of Albert Einstein since all of his personal papers have become available. How did his mind work? What made him a genius? Isaacson's breakthrough biography deftly shows how Einstein's scientific imagination sprang from the rebellious nature of his personality. A compelling life story that's a true testament to the connection between creativity and freedom.

Bonus: see our exclusive video interview with Isaacson.

Re: Einstein: His Life and Universe by Walter Isaacson

I just bought the book, and can't wait to dig in. I've admired Mr. Isaacson's previous biographies, so I am excited at this opportunity to actually ask him questions. Previous bios of Einstein have intimidated me since I do not have a scientific background. Mr. Isaacson very personal approach to his previous subjects appeals to me. Looking forward to this!
