Einstein: His Life and Universe
By the author of the acclaimed bestseller Benjamin Franklin, this is the first full biography of Albert Einstein since all of his papers have become available.
Once again Walter Isaacson has produced a most valuable biography of a great man about whom much has already been written. This is a brilliant intellectual tapestry, weaving Einstein's revolutionary scientific achievements, his prolific political initiatives, his complex personal life, and his fascinating personality.
Walter Isaacson is the President and CEO of the Aspen Institute. He has been the Chairman and CEO of CNN and the Managing Editor of Time magazine. He is the author of Benjamin Franklin: An American Life (2003) and of Kissinger: A Biography (1992).
