KIRKUS REVIEW

For the slow student, the dreamer, the misunderstood child, here is a ray of hope. In this human account of Albert Einstein, great emphasis is put on his early academic difficulties, the reluctance of his teachers to recognize his peculiar brilliance, the inability of his devoted family to communicate with their unusual son. Less concerned with the details of his work and more with his general attitudes toward religion, society, and his environment, this biography written for an older age group than most of the biographies of Einstein currently available, is vivid with human interest. Of particular interest to Jewish readers, though not necessarily restricted to them.
