    Einstein as easy as A B C

    This book is an accessible and concise summary of Einstein's thoughts and life. Do not gewt me wrong this is not your typical biograpy. It also deals with his theories and his thought process behind them. The best part is the fact that he explains Einstein's development of the theory through Einstein¿s thoughts. Kaku takes the reader into how Einstein imagined the issue. In fact, Kaku makes it sort of seem easy to be Einstein in the understandable (absence of math) way he describes his processes.
