Read in July, 2009

True story, funny and weird. I really enjoyed it. The author, a journalist tracks down the 84 yr old pathologist who performed Albert Einstein's autopsy in 1955. Einstein was to be cremated, so the eccentric pathologist removed his brain and took it home. Story revolves around the road trip the author and Harvey take across the country (with the brain in the car) to show the brain to Einstein's granddaughter. Proves truth is stranger than fiction.
