It’s an incredibly thick book that I’ve been reading for what seems like ever, but I’ve finally finished Walter Isaacson’s great biography on Albert Einstein.
The following is the review I posted at GoodReads, a nice social networking website related to books:
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars
A fascinating look into Einstein’s life. Definitely more aloof than I would have suspected, but seemed like such a genuine and friendly character.
It was also interesting to see how he was always “raging against the machine” as a young student (which helped him to expand on his theories of relativity) and then become more conservative in his thinking as he was older (as evidenced by his frustrating and unsuccessful search for a unified theory).
