Einstein by Walter Isaacson Book Summary

By the author of the acclaimed bestsellers Benjamin Franklin and Steve Jobs, this is the definitive biography of Albert Einstein.

How did his mind work? What made him a genius? Isaacson’s biography shows how his scientific imagination sprang from the rebellious nature of his personality. His fascinating story is a testament to the connection between creativity and freedom.

Based on newly released personal letters of Einstein, this book explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk—a struggling father in a difficult marriage who couldn’t get a teaching job or a doctorate—became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos, the locksmith of the mysteries of the atom, and the universe. His success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marveling at mysteries that struck others as mundane. This led him to embrace a morality and politics based on respect for free minds, free spirits, and free individuals.

These traits are just as vital for this new century of globalization, in which our success will depend on our creativity, as they were for the beginning of the last century, when Einstein helped usher in the modern age.

Delightful exploration of this brilliant scientistWalter Isaacson delivers an intimate, close-up journey into the genius of Albert Einstein. Along the way he offers insights into the worlds of physics, math, and quantum mechanics, which only gently nudges the reader against incomprehensibility. The book is also a grand tour of the brilliant minds who shaped physics in the early 20th century, such as Lorentz, Bohr, Schrödinger, and Heisenberg. Thoroughly delightful read..Score: 5/5

The mind of a geniusMr. Isaacson succeeds in showing all sides of Einstein: his genius, his philosophy, his politics, his flaws, his virtues. An amazingly well documented book.

NationalityI really cannot understand Einstein's nationality.? Wether he was German, Jew, Swiss or American.? Or in this world with power of globalization, we don't need to have nation. We just be honest, pay tax, protect and enjoy to the place we live for one period of time.?.Score: 5/5
