This neat new biography of Albert Einstein does just what its author intended it to -- it shows with feeling how much more than a superb scientist he was. This humble man and great humanitarian was at a loss to understand why he was so evered. There is no attempt to over-dramatize events in his life, which unfolds smoothly from his early days in Munich to his last days at Princeton. The difficulty of earning a living; his devotion to physics, science, and peace; his relationships with his family and other greats in the arts and sciences; his travels; and his little mannerisms are all clearly portrayed in a modest yet evocative kind of writing that even puts across some of the physics he was concerned with so deeply. An excellent, uncluttered biography for both the young adult and adult reader. Includes a synoptic calendar of world events paralleling events in his life.
