Praise for previous editions: "All of us who lack Einstein's intellectual and spiritual gifts owe a debt of gratitude to Princeton University Press for having humanized him in this innovative way."- Timothy Ferris, New York Times Book Review Praise for previous editions: "This fascinating book reveals Einstein as a fully rounded human, with both a tender and a darker, more brooding side." - Physics World Praise for previous editions: "Equations and texts are . . . Einstein's true monument, and Calaprice lays out a veritable feast of pithy and telling aphorisms drawn from his speeches and letters. . . . They reveal a private Einstein who never strove for the monumental phrase but was able to deliver it in a seemingly effortless off-the-cuff manner." - David E. Rowe, Times Higher Education Supplement (Key Words: Quotations, Albert Einsten, Alice Calaprice, Freeman Dyson, Science). book. Bookseller Inventory # 72765X1
