Einstein in Love: (A Scientific Romance) by Dennis Overbye

As Dennis Overbye explains in the introduction to Eiinstein in Love, his first book since the National Book Critics Circle and Los Angeles Times Book Award nominee Lonely Hearts of the Cosmos, his primary goal is to separate the man Albert from the myth Einstein, to restore humanity and individuality and shaded nuance to a man who has become the most monolithic figure in the scientific pantheon.<P>Einstein in Love is the first of the many biographies of the great scientist to focus exclusively on his life during the first two decades of the wentieth century, the period of the greatest intellectual catclysm in modern history. The love in the title of this book has a double meaning, referring not only to young Alberts exhilarating infatuation with his discoveries of the vistas of a new physics in general relativity, but also his ecstatic, cerebral, and tormented relationship with his first wife, Mileva Maric. While Mileva has always been a controversial figure in the Einstein legend - some commentators have gone as awarding her equal credit for the discovery of relativity - no book has treated her as fully and as sympathetically
