"The best account.... Superb insight." --The Times (London)
"Denis Brian's convincing picture...only makes our wonder grow at Einstein's sublime achievements." --The Washington Post

"A fascinating, vastly enjoyable, deeply researched and fair account of Einstein the man." --Physics World
"Exhaustively researched, almost obsessively detailed, written with unobtrusive informality, the book is exemplary as a record of Einstein's personal and professional life." --The Spectator (u.k.)
"An utterly fascinating life of a great scientist, full of new insights and very readable." --Ashley Montagu
"A fascinating read with more interesting material about Einstein as a human being than I have ever seen before.... Once I started it, I couldn't put it down." --Robert Jastrow, astrophysicist and bestselling author

This intriguing biography of one of the most monumental and controversial figures in publishing history is filled with fascinating stories of the Hungarian emigrant’s rise from a practically penniless soldier in the Union army to U.S. congressman, and, finally, to the pinnacle of American journalism–and power–as the owner of two of the country’s preeminent newspapers, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and New York World.
Including new personal information about Pulitzer’s public and private life culled from his own correspondence and interviews, this absorbing book reveals how he transformed the New York World into one of the nation’s most influential and respected papers and inaugurated the era of the modern popular press and a "new journalism" that mixed sensational stunts, entertaining stories, and cartoons with serious financial, foreign, and political news, as well as editorial campaigns that helped to change the course of history.
Also revealed here are the intriguing details of the frantic Pulitzer-Hearst circulation battle during the Spanish-American War; how Pulitzer, struck blind at forty, continued to run his empire for twenty-two more years with the aid of a coterie of extraordinary secretaries, to champion the underdog, expose corrupt insurance companies and crooked politicians, and to fight injustice wherever he found it; how he was a pioneer in hiring women reporters–including Nellie Bly, uncovered James Blaine’s shady deals to assure Grover Cleveland’s victory, led the campaign to erect the Statue of Liberty, defied President Theodore Roosevelt’s attempt to imprison him for criminal libel, and founded the Columbia School of Journalism.About the Author:
DENIS BRIAN is the author of Einstein: A Life (Wiley), The True Gen: An Intimate Portrait of Ernest Hemingway by Those Who Knew Him, and Genius Talk: Conversations with Nobel Scientists and Other Luminaries. He lives in West Palm Beach, Florida.
