Einstein in Love: A Scientific Romance
While the world hailed Einstein's genius, his private life was collapsing around him. His marriage to the beautiful, tormented Mileva had failed and he had launched into affairs with a string of comely young women. But at its height, Einstein and Mileva's marriage had been an extraordinary one - a colleague and often fierce adversary, Mileva had been brilliantly matched with the scientific genius, pillow-talking relativity and quantum mysticism. In Einstein in Love, Dennis Overbye presents this greatest of scientific romances in a vivid new light, telling the private story of a young man -a sly firebrand who left personal and professional chaos in his wake - who changed the way we view reality. Separating the man from the myth, this biography restores humanity, individuality and nuance to the most iconic figure in the scientific pantheon.
