    Was Einstein's first wife his uncredited coauthor, unpaid assistant, or his unacknowledged helpmeet? The real “Mileva Story.” Albert Einstein's first wife, Mileva Einstein-Marić, was forgotten for decades. When a trove of correspondence between them beginning in their student days was discovered in , her story began to be told. "The Physicist and the Philosopher is a lively and engaging account of the meaning of time in the twentieth century. Canales uses the debate between Albert Einstein and Henri Bergson as a starting point from which to discuss an astonishing array of .

    This really depends on how much of the math you want to digest in order to understand Einstein's work. If you are looking for a book about Einstein's life and not so much a technical explanation of his work in physics, then Einstein: His Life and.   Albert Einstein's Year of Miracles: Light Theory One hundred years ago today, Albert Einstein finished a scientific paper that would change the .

    Einstein was not the first to formulate a relativity theory, however: Galileo had considered the concept in the early seventeenth century. According to Galilean relativity, the laws of mechanics are useless to an observer in a non-accelerating reference frame trying to determine whether he or she is moving with respect to another reference frame. A historian dives deep into Einstein's brief, often overlooked time in Prague A little-known encounter between Albert Einstein and Franz Kafka may have occurred in Prague in We know that both men attended, on at least one occasion, evening gatherings in the famous salon of Berta Fanta, and that Einstein may have lectured to this audience.

Einstein and Nuclear Energy Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity Albert Einstein regarded as the scientific history of the twentieth century.

Einstein proposed the famous equation E = equation proved to be revolutionary for future studies in nuclear physics, but in those days the means to prove experimentally were not available/5(K). Isaacson wrote the critically acclaimed Einstein: His Life and Universe (), for which he had access to previously unavailable papers belonging to Einstein.

He has also written Benjamin Franklin: An American Life (), Kissinger: A Biography (), and is the co-author, with Evan Thomas, of The Wise Men: Six Friends and the World They Made ()/5(22). The "definitive biography" of one of the most famous scientists who ever lived is detailed and well-researched.

Though a scientific genius and a nice man, Albert Einstein () had his prejudices, hated Germany, was the prototype of the "absent-minded professor" more comfortable with things than with people, and generally disdained anyone not in his inner circle (though he loved children)/5. This was one of Einstein's favorite books Along with The Infinite Way and Kahlil Gabran's The Prophet, this book made its way into Elvis Presley's reading list.

"The Other Einstein takes you into Mileva's heart, mind, and study as she tries to forge a place for herself in a scientific world dominated by men."-Bustle In the tradition of The Paris Wife and Mrs.

Poe, The Other Einstein offers us a window into a brilliant, fascinating woman whose light was lost in Einstein's Brand: Gale Group. One telling measure of the philosophical importance of Einstein’s new perspective on the ontology of spacetime is the fact that Schlick devoted his first book, Raum und Zeit in den gegenwärtigen Physik (), a book for which Einstein had high praise (see Howard and ).

But what most interested Einstein was Schlick’s discussion of Cited by: The book was organized by aspects of Einstein's life instead of chronologically. For example, there was a chapter that was dedicated to his relationship with his children.

What this lead to was a lot of things being hinted at in previous chapte I read through the first half of this book before I decided I was satisfied enough to put it down.4/5.

How this came about is one of the great sagas in the history of Western thought. 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 ed on: Prompted by his colleague L.
