Description


Few men have received the recognition that was accorded Albert Einstein in his lifetime. The reasons for that fame; the gentle, warmhearted nature of this great man; and the basic theories of his work in relativity are brought to focus in this informative biography. Arthur Beckhard discusses the early life of Einstein when he formulated his revolutionary theories, the dangers he faced in Nazi Germany, his years at the Institute of Advanced Study in Princeton, and his significant contributions to the Manhattan Project during World War II. Albert Einstein is seen as a man of simplicity and genius, a Nobel Prize winner—and most importantly, as a humanitarian, a man who really cared about the world he helped to make. “Without attempting a profound portrait, the nature of the man and the basic theory that underlies his work in relativity are brought to light here in an informative, respectful book.”—Virginia Kirkus Service, Inc. “A concise but well-written biography . . . brings out the character of the man as well as giving perspective to the accomplishments of the scientist.”—Christian Science Monitor “An affectionate biography which includes every major scientific detail in Einstein’s great life. Presents the facts and presents them well.”—New York Times
