Abraham Pais has written a superbly documented and clear biography of Albert Einstein, whom he knew personally. This biography is enhanced by a most clear and pertinent exposition of the work of other great contemporaries of Einstein, such as Minkowski, Lorentz, Planck, etc. The writing is excellent, detailed, yet easy to read, either sequentially or in segments. My only regret is that I did not read this book many years ago.
