This was a wonderful book, well written and well read. I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. I always knew Einstein was an unparalleled genius and of his most notable accomplishments, but did not know how interesting he was as a person. Definitely recommend this book to anyone with an interest in knowing about Einstein.
A wonderful emotional picture of an interesting man. Forget who he is and the myths and just enjoy the story.
Long, yes. Well worth it? Absolutely!
Isaacson has crafted a wonderful look inside the mind (and the life and times) of the most influential scientist to come along since Newton.
Herrmann did an absolutely brilliant performance in bringing the story to life.
Excellent recount of history and Insight into the brillance of thought and compassion.
Very detailed, entertaining, and thorough biography about one of the most brilliant and interesting people of the 20th century.
Inspiring story of not so much what Einstein knew about physics and math, but how he thought about them that made him so different from other geniuses. He went against the grain of science and often his teachers, resulting in a long wait to get his first "real" job. A humble, interesting men, who was adored by women. Never seemed to be without one, actually.
The outstanding story is presented by a narrator that brings all the detail of Einstein's life to us in a compelling way. I found it difficult to pause during the book; the audio analog to the "page-turner". Some material can be found in other audio books, but is not tedious to listen to again, as each chapter adds context for the next. Overall, an amazing biography of an amazing man. You'll not be disappointed in this.
