This book chronicles the life of Albert Einstein with photos and descriptions of his childhood, adolescence, adulthood, as well as his scientific discoveries and other passions. I think it would best be used with older students (high school), and could be incorporated into a science class. I learned a lot about Einstein that I never knew before by reading this informative book. Still had trouble understanding his theories though!
Albert Einstein is a really genius guy. Science and physic is not my favorite subject but Einstein really make out science that for today still know about his name with his science and physic.
