When it comes to scientists that have made their mark in the world, then none are perhaps more famous than Albert Einstein. Students around the world are taught about his theories and equations with E=mc2 undoubtedly being the most famous.
However, there was more to this man than simply being a genius or the original prototype of the mad professor. Instead, this was a man that was dedicated to not only his profession, but also the concept of pacifism, something that most people are unaware of.
Albert Einstein went from a late developing child to running away from school to almost failing university and instead turned himself into one of the greatest minds that the world has ever seen. This is his story, a story of how a child taught himself calculus and geometry and was then not afraid to challenge concepts of how the world worked that had been unchanged for centuries. This was a man who stood up for what he believed in even when the world appeared to be against him.
The story of Albert Einstein is about more than just mathematical equations. The story is about a man who beat the odds and became world famous in the unlikely world of physics and the universe.

I am a sophomore in high school that chose to read this book for my research project. I chose Albert Einstein because I know he's famous for one of his works, E=mc2, but I didn't know much about him. This book is very informative. It explains Einstein's life very thoroughly and explains his theories. I now know more about what his theories or published papers were based on. The book also contains information about his love life and when he was a child. The way the author wrote the book had me intrigued most of the time I was reading it. There were some parts when I got bored such when he thoroughly explains Einstein's theories. The style of the author's writing was as if he was having a conversation with me, which helped me focus more when reading. Overall, the book was really great and helped me a great deal in knowing much more about Einstein. He truly is a fascinating man.
