Description from back cover:
This remarkable study is the model of what the biography of a scientist should be. Its author, a noted scientist himself, collaborated with and was a friend of Albert Einstein.
On these pages we come to know Albert Einstein, 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.
