I really enjoyed the different perspectives that came out of reading essays by different people. All of them had similar, yet varied, careers. Some of them knew Einstein, and some knew *of* him, but all had a thorough knowledge of him, what he was like, and how he impacted the lives of millions.

I highly recommend this. It was a fun and interesting read.

A great summer read or me. Left me wanting to learn more about the man. The variety of essayists and topics taught me a lot about a man I have always had a lot of respect for.
