Kurzbeschreibung

The myth is well-known. In 1905 an unknown 26-year-old clerk at the Swiss Patent Office, who had supposedly failed math in school, burst on to the scientific scene and swept away the hidebound theories of the day. The clerk, Albert Einstein, introduced a new and unexpected understanding of the universe and launched the two great revolutions of twentieth-century physics, relativity and quantum mechanics. The obscure origin and wide-ranging brilliance of the work recalled Isaac Newton’s “annus mirabilis” (miracle year) of 1666, when as a 23-year-old seeking safety at his family manor from an outbreak of the plague, he invented calculus and laid the foundations for his theory of gravity. Like Newton, Einstein quickly became a scientific icon--the image of genius and, according to Time magazine, the Person of the Century.

The actual story is much more interesting. Einstein himself once remarked that “science as something coming into being ... is just as subjectively, psychologically conditioned as are all other human endeavors.” In this profile, the historian of science L. Randles Lagerstrom takes you behind the myth and into the very human life of the young Einstein. From family rifts and girlfriend troubles to financial hardships and jobless anxieties, Einstein’s early years were typical of many young persons. And yet in the midst of it all, he also saw his way through to profound scientific insights. Drawing upon correspondence from Einstein, his family, and his friends, Lagerstrom brings to life the young Einstein and enables the reader to come away with a fuller and more appreciative understanding of Einstein the person and the origins of his revolutionary ideas.

About the cover image: While walking to work six days a week as a patent clerk in Bern, Switzerland, Einstein would pass by the famous "Zytglogge" tower and its astronomical clocks. The daily juxtaposition was fitting, as the relative nature of time and clock synchronization would be one of his revolutionary discoveries in the miracle year of 1905.

A well written short introduction to the life of Albert Einstein. This book is an optional companion to a course on coursera. Seeing as it is rather short but packs a lot of content, I'd recommend this to anybody who is interested in one of the world's greatest minds.

It's an introductory text, which came along with a coursera course about Einstein. So far, I only read the text. It's well written and very interesting. Qualitatively no difference to a printed book.

A very good introduction to the history of Albert Einstein. To the point and with eady understandable examples to a very complicated scientific achievement.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Now I understand how Einstein became Einstein 18. Mai 2013
Von Edward Horne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
With so many Einstein books available, the choice is not obvious. This book explains how Einstein achieved the unimaginable, from his study of the work of others, to turbulence in his personal life, to his personality and character. Langerstrom avoids the many clichés about Einstein's youth. He relies on established, provable truth, rather than on legend. He shows long years of preparation culminating in a sudden breakthrough. I was convinced. It's a book for those with a serious interest in Einstein, not for a casual reader. It's a book to be studied. There's arcane material about other scientists that some readers will likely skip over. Respectfully disagreeing with other Amazon reviewers, I found the writing to be clumsy, uneven in tone and usage. Langerstrom is not a journalist. He's a physicist, and a very good one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very interesting 8. April 2013
Von Jerseygirl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
Part biography and part physics text, this book gives the reader an idea what was going on in Einstein's life and in his mind around the time he came up with his theory of special relativity.Interestingly, Einstein, as a person, is both more and less than most people assume him to be.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Young Einstein 25. März 2014
Von Gary L. Whitaker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
This book was interesting but a little heavy-going for a non-scientist. The explanation of Einstein's accomplishments is no doubt difficult without using some scientific terms but it seems the author was not tuned in to making it easy for the lay person to understand.
