1/23: starting out a wee bit sycophantic for my taste. not that einstein wasn't brilliant, but still. he wasn't any kind of deity, either.

2/20: ok, so maybe i should have known that it would be very praise-y, given the use of the word "creator" in the title. still reading, but it's hard to build up any kind of momentum (hello, bad physics pun!).

finally(!) finished this book. and oh my goodness. maybe i just don't have a head for physics, i don't know. i understand it must be a very difficult thing to try to write a biography of a major scientific figure without discussing his science, but i still feel this could have been done much, much better.

One of the best biographies I've read. While reading this book, you begin to understand the deep intelligence, simplicity and humility of Albert Einstein, and come away with a sense of wonder. ( )
