Summary
"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 else has contributed as much to science in the last 150 years. Published to commemorate the centenary of Einstein developing his theory of general relativity, Einstein : the Life of a Genius reveals the man behind the science, from his early years and experiments in Germany and his struggle to find work, 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 personal memorabilia belonging to Einstein, this book also includes reproductions of documents that reveal more than this scientist's groundbreaking theories"--Page 4 of cover
