Meet the Brilliant Physicist Hidden in Albert Einstein's Shadow
A marriage of geniuses: In a time when most twenty-year-old women were wives, or trying to be, Mileva Maric was studying physics at an elite university in Zurich. Her rise from the relative backwater of misogynistic Serbia to all-male university classrooms in Switzerland was nothing short of meteoric. Her male peers could only try to keep up with her clever calculations. For Mileva, math was an easier path than marriage. Then, fellow student Albert Einstein took an interest in her and the world turned sideways. Their life together was a partnership of heart and mind. But could there be room for more than one genius in a marriage?
The other Einstein: Mileva Maric was a fascinating, brilliant physicist in her own right. She was, in fact, the other Einstein. In the world of physics, there's much debate over the role she played in forming the theory of special relativity, one of her husband's greatest works. Was she simply a sounding board, computing the complex mathematical equations? Or did she contribute something more?
An overlooked woman of science: The Other Einstein is a novel in the spirit of The Paris Wife and Mrs. Poe. Marie Benedict brings to life the story of one of the most overlooked women of science. If you enjoyed I Was Anastasia and Beatriz Williams's books, you will love this captivating story.
Be sure to check out Marie Benedict's other books about spectacular women behind influential men: Carnegie's Maid and The Only Woman in the Room.
