Albert Einstein is the genius who invented e=mc2. He is possibly the brainiest scientist in history - and the battiest! But did you know that Al's life was almost as wild as his hair? Not only was an unruly young Al expelled from school, but he was spied on by the Nazis and the FBI. And after he died, he had his brain removed.

This series has always been one of my favorites, because though I simply hate reading anything about great people(they seem to go on and on about nothing but great deeds), this series had me up and reading about everyone I could. It's funny, innovative and really easy to understand.

I mean, I never ever, in my wildest dreams, imagined that I could have understood anything about the principle of relativity, or the laws of motion, but after reading this book, I found out that it wasn't that tough...more
Very interesting, also very educational, I found out lots of things I never knew.(view spoiler) It also has lots of stuff about Albert himself that I never new.

Recommends it for: Anyone who had to deal with Physics or Einstein at least once in his/her lifetime.
Recommended to Dana by: Boredom
Well, I have always loved Bio, liked Chem and dreaded Physics. Newton and Einstein were some robotic geniuses to me. But this book changed all that. Or at least ma assumptions about Einstein. This book shows that Einstein is a human and humans can understand the Relativity Theory and other endless theories. This book showed that Einstein was a genius because he tried to think beyond common sense. That he was a human who fell in love not once or twice but thrice (The rascal even had an affair!)....more

Never has a book on relativity been so interesting and full of humour! By far the best book on Einstein, relativity and in the dead famous series.

Awesome book
best book for budding physicists for for formal understanding of modern physics qualitatively esp. special theory of relativity
photoelectric effect should have been detailed like what exactly were the so called wobbly things if not photons
Took a very convoluted person , with a convoluted Theory of Relativity and made it - easy , fun and understandable. Adored this book thoroughly. I borrowed it from my Good Friend : Pratik Raichur. Thanks Mate.
