Subtle Is the Lord: The Science and the Life of Albert Einstein

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 1983 - Biography & Autobiography - 552 pages
9 Reviews
Having the advantage of knowing Einstein personally during the last nine years of his life and having access to some of his 50,000 pages of letters and science papers, the author fills many gaps about what we know of Einstein's life. It deals with his interest in philosophy, his concern with Jewish destiny, and his opinions of great figures from Newton to Freud. Also depicts the state of physics at the turn of the century and how Einstein transformed the field.

User Review  - Gabriel Iqbal - Goodreads

Masterpiece... Roger Penrose himself is a physicist of great rapport. I am particularly interested in his works on consciousness... they are way ahead of conventional limitations. Read full review
