  • Einstein: His Life and Universe

    • UNABRIDGED (21 hrs and 30 mins)
    • By Walter Isaacson

    Story
    (1979)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: You thought he was a stodgy scientist with funny hair, but Isaacson and Hermann reveal an eloquent, intense, and selfless human being who not only shaped science with his theories, but politics and world events in the 20th century as well. Based on the newly released personal letters of Albert Einstein, Walter Isaacson explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos.

    Henrik says: "Surprise: Two books in one!"
    "Interesting Book on a Great Man"
    Overall

    The author writes a thoroughly interesting book on a fascinating man. The writing style is engaging and interesting. The only problem areas are when he tries to explain some of the more technical aspects of Einstein's work. This is a bit hard to follow in the audio. All in all, a book well worth getting.

    To achieve sustained competitive advantage, you must create and deliver something that's valuable, rare, and hard to imitate: and you can't do that with a run-of-the-mill workforce. Your workforce needs to be strikingly different, and obsessively focused on delivering on your unique value proposition. Compared with everyone else's workforce, your people need to be downright strange.

    "Very Disappointing"
    Overall

    I listened to about 60% of this book and realized the author has little new or interesting to say. Most of what is in the book has been said before many times over.
