KIRKUS REVIEW

Behind the imposing title is a brief caricature of Einstein and a simple lecture on the theory of relativity. Pity the poor genius! At five, Einstein ""emerged from his cocoon in full splendor;"" upon preparing to take the university entrance examinations--""a cinch, (he) thought to himself""--but he failed; and, when Einstein heard that uranium atoms had been split, he decided ""this would make quite a bomb."" The remainder is a classroom presentation replete with illustrative examples (though few and poor illustrations), unexceptionable but unexciting.
