A very special Einstein book Aug 23, 2007
The books on Einstein continue to appear at ever accelerating since the one- hundredth anniversary of the annus mirabilis( 1905) when Einstein published the four papers that changed our perception of the physical world. Now Hebrew University the archivist of Einstein's personal papers has in conjunction with its university press, Magnes produced a truly stunning volume on Einstein's life and work. I'll admit what really knocked me out here are the quality photos many of which I have not seen before. The sad strangeness in the eyes of Einstein's first wife in a photo with her sons, the bearlike strength of the young Einstein so at odds with our image of the scattered - hair dreamy genius. I was too pleasantly surprised by the quality of the text, even that providing brief descriptions of Einstein's major scientific accomplishments. The work also has many captions which contains quotations from Einstein. And the truth is Einstein seems a very wise and humane person i.e. not simply some kind of remarkable-super-brained genius. This is a very special book and one I loved looking through and reading. I believe all those who take interest in Einstein and his work will take pleasure from this work.
