Einstein: A Biography
Separating man from genius, Einstein offers a startling new portrait of the iconic physicist. Wild-haired eccentric, revolutionary scientist, peace activist, Albert Einstein is well established in the popular imagination. He is celebrated for his contributions to our understanding of the cosmos, and his personal life—particularly his troubled relationship with his family and his numerous affairs with women—continues to generate controversy.
Jürgen Neffe takes a completely new approach to Einstein, giving readers an intimate look at Einstein’s life and work. He debunks popular stereotypes and explains Einstein’s scientific achievements in clear and accessible prose. Drawing on newly unearthed documents, including a series of letters from Einstein to his sons, Neffe presents a rich psychological portrait of a man whose character has too often been lost in the bright glow of celebrity.
