Votre note
Tens of thousands of people enjoyed the first edition of " The Quotable Einstein ". This enlarged and updated version offers even more fascinating insight into Time magazine's "Man of the Century." The " Expanded Quotable Einstein " includes about 375 new quotations and covers topics that have recently appeared in the media-such as the most current research on Einstein's brain, the possible collaboration of his wife Mileva on his work, and the newly discovered love letters that Einstein sent to an alleged Soviet spy. An entirely new section on music has been added, the section on science has been expanded greatly, and new photographs add fresh visual appeal. Finally, the new appendix contains an account of the editor's personal peek into the FBI's Einstein file and shows us Einstein's famous letter to President Franklin-D Roosevelt, which ushered in the atomic age in the United States. Much more than a series of soundbites, this book of documented quotations and supplementary information about Einstein's life, family, and work puts his thoughts into context. A fairly complete biographical account of this multifaceted man emerges-as son, husband, father, lover, scientist, philosopher, aging widower, humanitarian, and friend. It shows us vividly why the real and imagined Einstein continues to fascinate people the world over.
