About the Author
Christopher Wanjek is a health and science journalist and author. He gained international notoriety as the health writer with his 2005 book Food at Work, written for the U.N.'s International Labor Organization, about workers' nutrition. The book project, since presented in over 20 countries, has led to laws in several countries to improve workers' access to healthy food. His first book, Bad Medicine, from 2003, continues as a weekly health column for LiveScience.com. As a freelance journalist, Wanjek has written extensively for The Washington Post and Sky & Telescope, as well as Smithsonian, Forbes, and other U.S.- and European-based magazines. His books and magazine articles have been published in seven languages. From 1997 to 2007 he was the senior writer for NASA's Beyond Einstein Program, which focused on general relativity, high-energy astrophysics and the Einstein legacy. Also since 1997, Wanjek has been a contributing joke writer for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He is a graduate of Harvard School of Public Health, and he resides in the Washington-metropolitan area with his wife and daughter. Hey, Einstein! is his first novel. Similarity to each of the Einstein clones presented in the novel is purely coincidental.
