• Albert Einstein

    This beautifully written illustrated memoir is a testament to the indomitable spirit that pervaded the life & work of Albert Einstein. Unlike lengthy biographies that often founder in trivia, the book paints a coherent picture in broad strokes to capture for the lay reader the essence of the man & his science. Helen Dukas, Einstein’s secretary for the last 27 years of his life, has greatly enriched the portrait not only thru her unique personal knowledge but also by providing valuable insights gleaned from the great scientists’s personal papers in the Prinseton archives. Many documents & photographs are reproduced here for the first time.
