Yes, it gives insight about the life of an amazing person.
The effort spent on compiling the story from various letters and other sources.
Debate between Einstein and Neils Bohr,
No. It is a long book. I would recommend spreading it out for several weeks.
Einstein Einstein Einstein- Niels Bohr.
I liked learning about Einstein and how he lived, especially his childhood and his years in America.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book, however, around 2/3rds of the way through it became rather dull when it was explaining more about how Einstein was bent on disproving quantum mechanics. That was a small section though and I believe it helped show Einstein's political side after his miracle year.
I liked how Walter showed the humanity of Albert, in both his genius and his life. Got a full run down on the history of his life and an In depth look at the general theory of relativity.
Balances Einstein's life story and his science very well. The reader does need to have a basic understanding of physics to appreciate the sheer genius of Einstein described in this account.
This book is meticulously researched and sourced, yet written in a witty and entertaining way. Edward Hermann has done a great job narrating this book. There is more to Einstein than just science, and Walter Isaacson made it very interesting. I was researching and learning more about the science topics thats mentioned in the book and it made this book amazing.
For those of you thinking it might be more about science, it is not. Author has done a great job explaining complex science topics and can be easily understood by those who may not have science background.
There are multiple things that made this story amazing. But one thing that stands out is that this beautiful minded person had a troubled personal life and shows that he is still a human like us.
Great narration. He is the best for this book.
loved every minute of it. I am compelled to go on and understand more about Einsteins theories
in hindsight I think I should have read the abridged version. This book is so detailed that I found it tedious to finish. great information, but too long for my taste. in addition I should have read it at 1.25x speed much of the time. There may be a few areas where you want to slow down to catch the thought experiments, but overall I think the author is just fairly slow.
