- Full Description
At first a simple employee of the Swiss Patent Office in Bern, but also an aspiring young science student, young Einstein began a series of scientific articles that questioned everything previously understood in the world of physics. His theory, summed up by the formula E = mc2, opened to humanity the doors of the power of the atom. A legendary genius, but also a great humanist, Einstein lived through the first half of the 20th century, with all its horrors and contradictions that being Jewish during the Nazi reign would entail. First published in France.
Einstein was always working in the service of science, but distraught by what man's madness is capable of doing with it.
A father offered his son, a five-year-old Albert Einstein, a compass that triggered an irrepressible need to understand the laws of the universe and an iconic scientific career. Here is the complete story of the man, including his complex personal life, eventually leaving his first wife and fellow scientist to take up with another woman who enabled him to be the slightly mad genius he became.
