Description

Ronald W. Clark's acclaimed biography of Einstein, the Promethean figure of our age, goes behind the phenomenal intellect to reveal the human side of the legendary absent-minded professor who confidently claimed that space and time were not what they seemed.

Here is the classic portrait of the scientist and the man: the boy growing up in the Swiss Alps, the young man caught in an unhappy first marriage, the passionate pacifist who agonized over making the Bomb, the indifferent Zionist asked to head the Israeli state, and the physicist who believed in God.

I was mainly just interested in Einstein and the book did not disappoint but I had to plow through numerous attempted explanations of various theories. Since I am a dud in physics this was difficult for me and I never did 'get it'. And I know the author was trying to make it as simplistic as possible. :(

The Definitive Biography of Einstein...
I read this as a teenager and reading again now....
Read the 5 five star reviews...

This is a well-written exposition of Einstein's life and theories. Many of the sentences, and even some paragraphs, are written in passive voice, and there are more block quotes than I've ever experienced in a book before. Mr. Clark's research is clearly thorough and he does well to synthesize the information into a modest length biography.

This is a comprehensive look at the life and work of a great man. It explains his work in a way which is understandable to non physicists. Given the complexity of this work, that is a gift. The humanity of Einstein shines through this beautifully written book

Interesting public figure indeed!
Very wordy and stopped reading after a while. I had previously read the material in this as far as I read and it wasn't an easy read.
I love reading about Einstein but this wasn't my kind of reading. Boring most of time.
