By the author of the acclaimed bestseller Benjamin Franklin,
this is the first full biography of Albert Einstein since
all of his papers have become available.
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
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.
