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.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Now I understand how Einstein became Einstein 18. Mai 2013
Von Erik Nelson - Veröffentlicht auf
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.

3.0 von 5 Sternen short and concise early biography 9. April 2013
Von Liam H Dooley - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
This book is written to accompany the coursera course on Einstein and the Special Theory of Relativity. If you are looking for a comprehensive biography of Einstein's life, this is not it. What it is is a concise - in my view with just the right amount of detail and speed - biography of Einstein from childhood to 1905, when he published five major papers while a patent clerk in Switzerland. It covers his first marriage, his education, and how he came to come up with the five papers. There is great information about his early struggles just to land a job.

The scientific theories are briefly summarized for a layman. I would say that at the end of the book, you want to know more about both Einstein and his theories, so this book is really just a preview into a fascinating man and field.

On one side it describes Einstein's character in a compact matter, on the other side it is too short to cover more known details thus making the picture somewhat incomplete.
5.0 von 5 Sternen a personal introduction to einstein 10. Mai 2013
Von Lily - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
A thoughtful and thorough-yet-concise picture of Einstein's young life. I have found it is much easier and more rewarding to learn about scientific ideas when I have a vivid sense of where those ideas came from. This read drew me in to the story that birthed so many theories that have shaped the world I live in today. I recommend this to anyone who endeavors to understand Einstein, his life, his theories, and way they have expanded the possibilities for the way we perceive our world.

Nice introduction to Einstein up to the Special Theory of Relativity. Makes a nice companion to the EdX class taught by Professor Lagerstrom (which I would also recommend).
