History Book Club meets the fourth Thursday of every other month. This month, we will read and discuss Einstein: The Life of a Genius by Walter Isaacson.
Albert Einstein is synonymous with genius. From his remarkable theory of relativity and the famous equation E=mc2 to his concept of a unified field theory, no one has contributed as much to science in the last century.
As well as showing how Einstein developed his theories, Einstein
reveals the man behind the science, from his early years and
experiments in Germany and his struggle to find work at the Swiss patent
office to his marriages and children, his role in the development of
the atomic bomb, and his work for civil rights groups in the United
Drawing on new research and personal documents
belonging to Einstein only recently made available, this book also
includes items of rare facsimile memorabilia, to show you more than this
