Genius, a photography of Albert Einstein, was written by the world’s famous author Marfé Ferguson Delano. One of the three most important moments that pushed Albert Einstein to become a mathematician, as Einstein exclaimed, was When I was a little boy my father showed me a small compass, and the enormous impression that it made on me certainly played a role in my life.

Delano’s book is a refreshing change. Einstein was a scientist first and foremost, but he was also a Jew. Delano does a fine job explaining how his religion and ancestry helped shape Einstein as more than a genius. Using a straightforward style and plenty of attractive photos, along with easy-to-understand diagrams of difficult scientific concepts, Genius provides a wonderfully complete biography of Einstein. Black-and-white and sepia-toned photos are smoothly displayed against backgrounds showing letters and texts written in Einstein’s own hand, as well as other important manuscripts such as his . naturalization certificate.

This book also taught me the understanding that if you could never see light unless you show something in it, like chalk dust. This is because the light is moving so fast that you can’t see it, which is like a professional pitcher when they throw the ball.

On the 100th anniversary of the publishing of the special theory of relativity, this National Geographic photobiography chronicles the life of one of the most brilliant scientists who ever lived. Through compelling text and stirring archival photographs, the author recounts Einstein's life from his privileged childhood in Austria through the crucial years during World War II, and his death 50 years ago in Princeton, New Jersey. Young readers learn about Einstein's remarkable theories that still influence technologies of today and discover the causes he passionately supported such as disarmament and civil liberties.

Genius, was an excellent biography of Albert Einstein, talking all about his life. Starting from when he was born, the book takes the reader on a journey, through his schooling, his research, coming to America, all the way till his death. The book also explains his major scientific discoveries, like his theory of relativity winning him the Nobel Prize, and the unified field theory he tried to figure out. This book has a lot of information, but is a very quick read. Overall, it is a great book.

I ordered this book for my mentally challenged son, hoping it would be simple enough for him to grasp, and it fulfilled my hopes very well. It's simple, yet comprehensive, and the photographs are superb.

Contrary to rumors that persist to this day, young Albert Einstein was not a poor student (pg. 12). A letter written by Pauline to her mother in 1886 noted with pride, “Yesterday Albert got his grades, once again he was ranked first, he got a splendid report card.” In 1896, 17-year-old Einstein graduated from the high school in Aarau with high marks and was accepted at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. Einstein wrote a research article on the theory of liquids that was published in the German scientific journal “Annalen der Physik” in 1901. Max Planck was an Editor of “Annalen der Physik” from 1895-1943. (Einstein-basher Roger Schlafly is not a good source.)

Einstein credited Galileo, Newton, James Clerk Maxwell, and Hendrik Antoon Lorentz for laying the foundations on which he built his special theory of relativity (pg. 27). Einstein never was able to accept quantum mechanics, unlike Niels Bohr and J.R. Oppenheimer (pg. 47). Henri Poincaré, Olinto De Pretto, Georges Lemaître, Philipp Lenard, Heinrich Hertz, and Wernher von Braun are not mentioned in this book.

Einstein was in favor of Socialism and critical of Capitalism, which he detailed in his essays. Einstein stated that he believed in the pantheistic God of Baruch Spinoza (Rebecca Goldstein wrote “Betraying Spinoza”). Einstein did not believe in a personal God who concerns himself with fates and actions of humans. As a member of the American Humanist Association, Einstein called himself an Agnostic once. The FBI banned Einstein from the atomic bomb/Manhattan Project (pg. 54). The FBI created a secret dossier on Einstein in 1932 and by 1955 his file was over 1,400 pages long. Einstein spoke out against HUAC and Senator Joseph McCarthy (pg. 56).
