    remarkable!

    The book is filled with so much information and is so precious in my opinion because it was written by Albert Einstein himself.

    A view into the mind of a true genius

    This collection of writings and commentary on Einstein's work and ideas is very informative and complete; a wonderful read for anyone looking for a deep insight into the mind of one of the smartest people of out time. It ranges from Einstein's opinions on education, government, and human rights, to his very famous theory of relativity and other scientific findings. The book also goes into some detail about the brilliant scientists that came before him such as Lorentz and Planck, as well as how they influenced him and how he learned and expanded on their findings. If science is not your thing, the book is full of discussion about some of the important issues our world faces, from the religious conflict in the Middle East, to the struggle for human rights around the world. There truly is something for everyone in this book. Any person with a desire to learn more about modern physics, scientific theories, or even just to learn about this philosophical genius that changed the world forever should definitely check this out.

    Einstein Is a Memorable Genius

    This book is very interesting, it is as if you entered the mind of Albert Einstein himself aside from his logic of current things in life.

    Some of the most important perspectives on life.

    Einstein's ideas on physics were not the only profound products of Einstein's mind. Amongst others, his thoughts on life are endlessly conducive to leading a meaningful and happy life.
