9780061351846: Einstein: The Life and Times

Ronald W. Clark's acclaimed biography of Einstein, the Promethean figure of our age, goes behind the phenomenal intellect to reveal the human side of the legendary absent-minded professor who confidently claimed that space and time were not what they seemed.

Here is the classic portrait of the scientist and the man: the boy growing up in the Swiss Alps, the young man caught in an unhappy first marriage, the passionate pacifist who agonized over making the Bomb, the indifferent Zionist asked to head the Israeli state, and the physicist who believed in God.

About the Author:

Born in London, Ronald W. Clark (1918–1987) spent three years researching and writing Einstein: The Life and Times. Among his other works are The Huxleys; JBS (the biography of biologist J. B. S. Haldane); The Life of Bertrand Russell; Freud: The Man and the Cause; and The Greatest Power on Earth: The International Race for Supremacy.

Review:

“Vivid and readable.” ―The New York Times

“Ronald Clark has read everything and corresponded with everybody, and this impressive book reveals much that was not generally known about the entire course of Einstein's life.” ―The Washington Post
