Einstein (Life & Times) (Life & Times)
P. D. SmithISBN: 1904341144;
Book DescriptionAlbert Einstein re-wrote the textbooks of science in 1905: physics since has been little more than a series of footnotes to the theories of a 26-year-old patent-office clerk. Einstein?s science and emotional life come together in this vivid portrait of a rebellious and contradictory figure, a pacifist whose legendary equation E=mc2 squared opened scientists? eyes to the terrible power within every atom. ?To punish me for my contempt for authority,? he lamented, ?Fate has made me an authority myself ?.
