From review of Princeton's original edition: "All of us who lack Einstein's intellectual and spiritual gifts owe a debt of gratitude to Princeton University Press for having humanized him in this innovative way."---Timothy Ferris, New York Times Book Review
From review of Princeton's original edition: "Masquerading as a quote book, this title may set a new standard for the genre as well as expand the concept. It is filled with the written and spoken thoughts of this cultural icon as well as those merely attributed to him but conveys much more than a traditional collection of sayings might." (Bloomsbury Review)
From review of Princeton's original edition: "This fascinating book reveals Einstein as a fully rounded human, with both a tender and a darker, more brooding side." (Physics World)
From review of Princeton's original edition: "The chief value of this collection of [Einstein's] more memorable observations on the events of the 20th century and his own part in them is that it reveals the development of the person as well as that of the scientist. [The Quotable Einstein] is something of a triumph." (New Scientist)
This is a marvelous treasure to dip into for an eclectic helping of wisdom and enjoyment. Better than the original highly regarded edition. (Australian Physics)
Equations and texts are . . . Einstein's true monument, and Calaprice lays out a veritable feast of pithy and telling aphorisms drawn from his speeches and letters. . . . They reveal a private Einstein who never strove for the monumental phrase but was able to deliver it in a seemingly effortless off-the-cuff manner.---David E. Rowe, Times Higher Education Supplement
This excellent updated edition is packed with wonderful quotes and anecdotes.---PD Smith, The Guardian
