Read full description of the books Who Was Albert Einstein?:Another book read for In2Books
Actually, not a bad biography of Einstein. Covers all the important life milestones, paints a well-rounded picture of Einstein without ignoring the fact that he was a crappy father and husband.
So why am I giving it only one star? There is a *glaring* science error in this book. Really egregious. right on pg 43, the author says, "Before Einstein, scientists thought that the sun was always in the same place, with the earth and other planets orbiting around it. .... Albert, however, shocked everybody by claiming that the sun, the other stars, the planets -- everything, all of the time -- are moving through space."
this must have especially shocked Thomas Wright, who suggested that the sun, and all the stars in the Milky Way are rotating around the center of the universe in *1750*!
I'm pretty sure the author was trying to simplify Einsten's development of the cosmological constant. But this explanation? Nonsense and demonstrably *wrong*.
