Einstein A to Z by Karen C. Fox, Aries Keck

The first accessible, handy reference to Einsteins world Albert Einstein was the twentieth centurys most celebrated scientist-a man who developed the theory of relativity, revolutionized physics, and became an iconic genius in the popular imagination. Now, in the first book of its kind, Einstein A to Z provides a vibrant overview of Time magazines Man of the Century and his remarkable achievements, with over one hundred lively, informative essays that explain and celebrate his life, his work, and his cultural influence. From absentmindedness to Zionism, each entry features a fascinating account of one aspect of Einsteins world, from lucid explanations of his work to insights into his personal life, predilections, and interests. Einstein A to Z offers a unique glimpse into the mind of the shabbily dressed man who would become so engrossed in his ideas that he often neglected to sleep or eat; the father who never met his first child and proposed marriage to one of his stepdaughters; the avowed pacifist who was torn between pride in his German heritage and disgust at the countrys militaristic ideology. Both students and devoted fans of this titan of science will find the journey enlightening, engaging, and just plain fun.
