Albert Einstein was a theoretical physicist and an intellectual giant of the twentieth century. This fascinating biography reveals Einstein’s life story, and how his theories changed the way we looked at the universe. Born in Germany in 1879, Einstein focused his studies on science and mathematics. He won a Nobel Prize in Physics and was instrumental in persuading U.S. President Roosevelt to pursue the development of the atomic bomb in World War II. Einstein published hundreds of research papers, articles, and books and lectured at universities in Europe and the United States until his death in 1955. Einstein’s name is synonymous with genius, and, not surprisingly, his brain has been preserved for study.

Reviews
Albert Einstein: Forging the Path of Modern Physics

“It is well-written, easy for the intended readership to understand, factual and very interesting. It creates a profile of Einstein that young readers can relate to because it mentions some of the problems he faced at school by being different from other children. He was different, of course, from other adults, too, but his fame made him a media darling, and he was often hounded by the public as entertainers are.” -CM Magazine, 04/14
