"I found so much to admire; there are many places where I just had to cheer what Isaacson had written."-- Dudley Herschbach, Professor of Science at Harvard

"Isaacson has admirably succeeded in weaving together the complex threads of Einstein's personal and scientific life to paint a superb portrait."-- Arthur I. Miller, author of "Einstein, Picasso"

"Isaacson has written a crisp, engaging, and refreshing biography, one that beautifully masters the historical literature and offers many new insights into Einstein's work and life."-- Diana Kormos Buchwald, General Editor of the Collected Papers of Albert Einstein

"This book will be widely and deservedly admired. It is excellently readable and combines the personal and the scientific aspects of Einstein's life in a graceful way."-- Gerald Holton, Professor of Physics at Harvard and author of "Einstein, History, and Other Passions"

"Isaacson's treatment of Einstein's scientific work is excellent: accurate, complete, and just the right level of detail for the general reader. Taking advantage of the wealth of recently uncovered historical material, he has produced the most readable biography of Einstein yet."-- A. Douglas Stone, Professor of Physics at Yale

"With unmatched narrative skill, Isaacson has managed the extraordinary feat of preserving Einstein's monumental stature while at the same time bringing him to such vivid life that we come to feel as if he could be walking in our midst. This is a terrific work."-- Doris Kearns Goodwin, author of "Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln"

"Walter Isaacson has captured the complete Einstein. With an effortless style that belies a sharp attention to detail and scientific accuracy, Isaacson takes us on a soaring journey through the life, mind, and science of the man who changed our view of the universe."-- Brian Greene, Professor of Physics at Columbia and author of "The Fabric of the Cosmos"

"Once again Walter Isaacson has produced a most valuable biography of a great man about whom much has already been written. It helps that he has had access to important new material. He met the challenge of dealing with his subject as a human being and describing profound ideas in physics. His biography is a pleasure to read and makes the great physicist come alive."-- Murray Gell-Mann, winner of the 1969 Nobel Prize in Physics and author of "The Quark and the Jaguar"

"This is a brilliant intellectual tapestry -- and a great read. Skillfully weaving Einstein's revolutionary scientific achievements, his prolific political initiatives, his complex personal life, and his fascinating personality, Isaacson has transformed the transformer of the twentieth century into a beacon for the twenty-first century."-- Martin J. Sherwin, coauthor of "American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer," winner of the 2006 Pulitzer Prize for biography -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.


Albert Einstein is synonymous with genius. From his remarkable theory of relativity and the famous equation E=mc2 to his concept of a unified field theory, no one has contributed as much to science in the last century.

As well as showing how Einstein developed his theories, Einstein reveals the man behind the science, from his early years and experiments in Germany and his struggle to find work at the Swiss patent office to his marriages and children, his role in the development of the atomic bomb, and his work for civil rights groups in the United States.

Drawing on new research and personal documents belonging to Einstein only recently made available, this book also includes items of rare facsimile memorabilia, to show you more than this scientist's groundbreaking theories.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Einstein from birth to death 24. Dezember 2009
Von A. G. Sanchez - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
From the beginning I'll admit I'm a sucker for these Museum In A Book type of books. These books are often described as books for children. I'm not sure why? Too many pictures, too much interaction? I don't get it.

This one was fairly typical of the style, with fixed pages throughout and with added pockets containing pictures, documents, postcards, newspaper articles etc. However this book also had many artifacts that were carefully taped onto the pages so that the reader could unfold them without removing them from the book. This is a little different than most books of this kind. This way documents stay on the page their meant to be on and don't get lost as easy. Is this good or bad? You decide. The graphics are also more subtle than many other books of this type. Less bright color, plenty of call out boxes with text and graphics lending itself to a more serious look.

It covers not only the work that Einstein did early in his life with Relativity and THE BOMB but also his work with Civil Rights, Israel, and McCarthyism. From his birth to his death and some of the more interesting time in-between. Very nicely done for a subject that can be somewhat dry.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic Book 25. November 2009
Von Nom De Plume - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
We bought this book to do a middle school project . . . and it was great for that. But it is a fabulous book for any purpose, including just to learn about a fascinating man who lived at a fascinating time. The organization of the book, the visual elements and the "artifacts" provided (copies of significant letters and documents from Einstein's life) kept my son -- and me! -- engaged in the subject in a way that a run-of-the-mill biography would not. (I note that the previous 1-star review was not based on the content of this book). Highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An awe-inspiring look at one of the greatest scientific minds of the 20th Century. 20. April 2013
Von Jerry Guild - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is an outstanding book for anyone who wants to learn about Dr.Albert Einstein.It covers his whole life from childhood in 1879 until his death at 76 in 1955. It covers why he was so important for his scientific work ,and does it so that the average person can get an idea of what he accomplished;but does not delve into the depth of Mathematics and Physics involved.This is just as well,because only a relative few highly educated and knowledgeable could even begin to fathom such complicated science and theories.
In spite of his scientific brilliance,this book gives a very clear insight of Einstein as a human being.It deals with his family life and shows him to be extremely simple in some ways ,but also a deep thinking person in many other ways.It details his political and religious beliefs and reasons for them.It also dispells many of the myths that have grown up around him,particularly that he was a slow learner.It also gives a good insight into what he felt man's ability to create a nuclear bomb ,imposed on man to learn how to avoid having it totally annihilate him.
The book is exceptionally well organized ,and the photographs ,illustrations and documents that are placed in "pockets" are what really make it unique. One often forgets that Winstein was first of all Jewish and his first language was German. At first glance,one might be disappointed when glancing at the inserts, that many of them are in German;but don't let that dissuede you as translations for all of them are provided.
The book gives several examples where Einstein could change his thinking when facts showed he was in error.This occurred in both his scientific as well as his social thinking.
Although many tried to pin the name Athiest on him;he denied it.He was angered buy those who said God did not exist.He did not feel that science and religion necessairly conflicted.He defined religion as the feeling that beyond even the marvelous experiences and emotions that touch us directly,there is a force that transends all.Only in his acknowledgement of this force could he be regarded as religious.Einstein many pronouncements were both embraced and denounced by Athiests and Believers.
An excellent book for anyone wanting to know about Dr.Einstein as a person,without getting involved in complicated Mathematics and Physics.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Curiously Fun and Highly-Informative Tactile-Table-Top scrapbook featuring the World's Best known Genius = Albert Einstein!! 10. Juli 2015
Von Book & Music thief, from HI - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a really cool concept = almost like a 'scrap-book' showcasing reproduced memorabilia highlighting Albert Einstein's momentous Life and achievements. I think it is meant as a supplement/compliment to Walter Isaacson's superlative biography from 2007 - but this unpretentious tactile-table-top condensed 3-D biography could also serve as a good 'introduction' to Albert Einstein for the school-aged, it actually contains a surprising amount of information and highlights key people that influenced Einstein like his first wife Mileva Maric (who was also a gifted mathematician herself)

Also included are a number of fascinating 'facsimiles' like reproductions of scientific-equations from his notebook (in his own handwriting of course), also that famous letter to Franklin Roosevelt imploring the President to step-up scientific/Atomic research (before Germany beats us to it), and even a copy of his hallowed U.S. citizenship certificate! And many more reproduced letters, postcards, etc. highlighting key phases in Einstein's extremely-eventful life!

The information in this book is also well thought-out and in addition to tracing Einstein's specific high-points (as well as a few low ones) - you also get a definite sense of just how deeply-impactful/ fateful the 20th Century really was ==> with Two devastating World Wars (and a subsequently-severely 'Cold' one) - but also filled with scientific-Wonders (and terrors) the human World could never have even imagined before!

In our ultra-modern 21st Century, technological wonders seem like everyday occurrences (and we certainly take most of them for granted now) - but roughly 100 or so years-Ago, authentic hyper-creative geniuses like Einstein in many ways created much of the World we live in today, mainly thru the power of their sheer imagination (undergirded by a foundation of impeccable 'logic' of course). Walter Isaacson's fun (and highly-informative) table-top scrapbook really drives this point home!

note: another important emphasis of Walter Isaacson's table-top book (and the full -biography) is that Albert Einstein was a brilliant-scientist with a genuinely beating human-heart = enthusiastically lending support to the civil-rights movement and other calls for a 'fair & just' society (far-ahead of his time in more ways than one)
5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful bit of brain food 17. Februar 2015
Von James D. Michels - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a beautiful coffee table book.

I bought it to have something good looking and engaging in my office guest area. I prefer to leave brain food lying about rather than garbage like the pop magazines. This book is a huge hit, people pick it up to look at the photos and the drawings and then get completely engrossed in the text. It is extremely well put together and immediately draws people into the rich story of this mans life and impact.

The only downside is that I keep having to rescue the book. People like it so much that they take it back to their desks. :)
