The Einstein revealed in these writings is witty, keenly perceptive, and deeply concerned for humanity. Einstein believed in the possibility of a peaceful world and in the high mission of science to serve human well-being. As we near the end of a century in which science has come to seem more and more remote from human values, Einstein's perspective is indispensable.

About the Author

In 1879, Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany. He completed his Ph.D. at the University of Zurich by 1909. His 1905 paper explaining the photoelectric effect, the basis of electronics, earned him the Nobel Prize in 1921. His first paper on Special Relativity Theory, also published in 1905, changed the world. After the rise of the Nazi party, Einstein made Princeton his permanent home, becoming a U.S. citizen in 1940. Einstein, a pacifist during World War I, stayed a firm proponent of social justice and responsibility. He chaired the Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists, which organized to alert the public to the dangers of atomic warfare.

Why not read this book it is just great to see the world in Einstein eyes plus we both have somthing in common to stay focus on one thing and stay with that one thing to the end to see what will the results be and the hate of war and beging a person that feels love this book is real deep it will show you how this man is so great and real down to earth

Known principally for his contribution to science, this book reveals the social conscience of this great thinker. The book is an eclectic collection of notes and letters on a broad range of subjects, all written in the period between the two world wars and provides insight into the views if this extraordinary man. The subjects covered include the future of science, pacifism, economics, Jewish issues and many personal reflections on people he respected. I was struck by the quality of the writing. Though many of the contributions are taken from notes or letters, they have the feel of being very precisely honed, displaying great writing skill. As many of the issues discussed remain relevant today this is not merely a historical artefact of Einstein's life, but also contains ideas that are well worth revisiting.

Albert Einstein was a man of such clarity of vision and a nearly prophetic sense of humanity. A much misunderstood genius.

I'm personally not a fan of the reckless scientists of our time but it is a very intersting look into the past through the eyes of an intellegent, if somewhat delusional, man.

This is the Hephaestus cabin. Little space is taken up by beds, as they are in private rooms below. Tools, nuts, bolts, and other pieces of machinary litter the cabin. Schematics are tacked up on bulletin boards and a fire pole comes from above. All sorts of forged weapons are hung on walls or in cabinets. ~Jasmine ***Chiron***
