Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is really a collection of essays on Einstein's life and, as the title suggests, does not try to offer a complete picture of the great man. The essays are independent so you can read them in any order and, indeed, I found it easier to read them by looking at the essay titles and choosing the one that caught my eye. ...It is clear that this is a very well researched book by a man who has written about Einstein and his work for over forty years and is the current Director of the Boston University Centre for Einstein Studies. The book does manage to paint a human picture of Einstein rather than try to build on the popular legend and there is no doubt that it will be used by historians as well as mathematicians and natural scientists as one of the most reliable studies of the man. It is the sort of book that one would expect to find in the library of all schools and universities."

--The Mathematical Gazette

"This welcome addition to the Einstein Studies book series presents a collection of selected articles and talks on Albert Einstein prepared over the past 25 years by John Stachel, the founding editor of the Collected Works of Albert Einstein. ...The articles selected survey the subject from different angles without going into too much technical detail, which makes them accessible to a wide audience of readers. ...The present volume can be recommended as a brief introduction into the life and work of Einstein. Thanks to sensibly provided annotations and references, it may also serve well as a departure point for deeper studies."

--Zentralblatt Math

By Mark Goretsky on March 9, 2007
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In his book, professor Stachel imparts the reader an insight into both Einstein as a scientist and as a human being. Stachel's massive knowledge of and affection for his subject makes his book a worthy companion to the best accounts of Einstein's life and scientific contribution. In addition to being profound, what sets this book apart from others is not playing down the rebellious site of Einstein's personality. Passions of the injustice defiant Einstein shine through the pages of this outstanding work.
