Format: Paperback
This volume doesn't have the unreadable, unformatted monospaced font that plagued the English translation of volume 2.

One could probably do without the "documentary" (untranslated) edition that the publisher says must be bought in conjunction this.

Volume 6 is missing a few documents from the "documentary edition" (and, unlike later volumes, does not list them as "not translated" in the table of contents -- I count 19); notably, it is missing "Experimental Proof of the Existence of Ampere's Molecular Currents" from April 1915, which is already in English in the documentary edition.

The translations lack the "editorial notes" that give a brief introduction/historical context to each group of papers (which in this case consist of 2 notes and ~9 pages) and the index (though the index only gives page numbers for the German originals, so it's not particularly helpful for the English reader)...though perhaps most importantly, it lacks the publishers' endnotes (which is somewhat ironic, as the notes are in English, but only included with the German text).

If without this translation version, I guess I'll be spending much more time in doing my own translation than trying to grasp the ideas in the papers. I really appreciate the translations.

Format: Paperback
Readers-
One might question why you might purchase a book such as this. Well the answer is quite simple. Logic. Now when I say logic I don't mean the logic of the words themselves rather the logic that you might read such an impressive work.
Einstien was a genius in his time, a genius yet to be surpassed (in the authority of Science that is). His works are timeless, classic examples of the scientific process and this particular is a well-balanced example.
Written during the years of the 1910s this volume's works depict a dedication to science even through the war in Europe.
A Must Read!
