Einstein: His Life and Universe - Walter Isaacson It was with great pleasure I took to reading about Einstein's human nature. It is full of witty aphorisms, theoretical physics debates with every scientist to leave a mark on history, and above all the struggle of a brilliant mind to fully succumb to any one train of thought. Einstein goes through an endless scientific pattern of accepting and rejecting everything in his life from religion, quantum physics, pacifism, politics, and monogamy, only to come full circle and accept again his original notions. By the end you wonder, in light of new evidence, what Einstein would ponder today. Most five star books I mark so because I have recommended or purchased them for someone I care about. I would be more likely to keep this one selfishly to myself. An addendum of Einstein's formulas would have proven useful for the visual learners.
