Albert Einstein: The Miracle Mind (Sterling Biographies Series)by Tabatha Yeatts
Thanks to his monumental accomplishments, Albert Einstein’s name is synonymous with genius. With his famous E=MC² and insights into quantum physics, this legendary scientist not only revolutionized the way we understand the universe, but paved the way for such diverse technology as lasers, cell phones, electron microscopes, DVD players, atomic weaponry, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Featuring kid-friendly explanations of the scientific principles, this compelling biography follows Einstein from his childhood through his early career struggles, and on to the theoretical breakthroughs and groundbreaking writings that won him the Nobel Prize. Equally important, we get a complete portrait of the man, who—deeply affected by the Holocaust—dedicated his life to pacifism and equal rights for all.

To be completely upfront, I have not read this particular book. It was a gift for my son's eleventh birthday. He was completely engrossed with the book and read it through in one sitting. We talked about it afterward, and he was able to provide a lot of information in response to my questions, information that I knew from my own past research to be factual. From that, I am assuming the book is both a great read for older readers and provides a good background on both Einstein's scientific contributions and on his personal life.
