    I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.

    Story
    "Well narrated but only mildly interesting"

    The narration is excellent (but a bit slow so 1.25x worked for me) and Einstein’s humanism and commitment to peace shine through. Nevertheless I found the content is only interesting from a historical context. This collection includes letters, speeches and essays on Zionism, socialism, unionism, world government, pacifism, and quite a few eulogies. The most interesting aspects was seeing subtle changes in Einstein’s outlook over time but this would likely have been more interesting in a biographical form.
