Einstein: His Life and Universe

I have apparently been on a non-fiction kick; after I finished John Hope Franklin’s autobiography, I picked up Einstein: His Life and Universe.  Matthew had already read it.  Again, this is a work of (auto)biography that you find yourself reading aloud to whomever is in the room with you at the time.

This really is an engrossing book, a fascinating look at the ways that Einstein’s personal, professional, and political lives intertwined.  I didn’t quite realize how little he actually contributed to physics after the age of 35, or exactly what a major public figure he was during his lifetime (though perhaps I should have).
