Physics and life examined

Excellent tale of Einstein's personal life as well as a layman's guide to physics.

The nature of genius

by saminindy on Jul 26, 2007

I really enjoyed this book. Einstein was not only a genius and a contrarian, but also a fascinatiing man who lived a full life outside of his scientific pursuits. He enjoyed comradeship with co-workers and friends and had a full if somewhat convoluted family life. He cultivated the "absent-minded professor" image, and comes across as an endearing figure whom one would have liked to encounter walking across the quad at Princeton, etc. Isaacson does well in keeping the narrative interesting; he's not always the greatest at explaining the arcane principles of theoretical physics. Many times, he loses me, and on occasion, I think he's just quoting the explanations provided by his physicist consultants without fully grasping the concepts themselves. Then again, that's what made Einstein a genius along side Isaac Newton, Capernicus, Planck, et al. Read it.
