Description

On the 100th anniversary of the publishing of the special theory of relativity, this National Geographic photobiography chronicles the life of one of the most brilliant scientists who ever lived. Through compelling text and stirring archival photographs, the author recounts Einstein's life from his privileged childhood in Austria through the crucial years during World War II, and his death 50 years ago in Princeton, New Jersey. Young readers learn about Einstein's remarkable theories that still influence technologies of today and discover the causes he passionately supported such as disarmament and civil liberties.

It has plenty of information for reports and is also a good choice for browsing."—starred review, School Library Journal

"There are plenty of books about Einstein, but this one combines a solid text with a particularly attractive format."—starred review, Booklist
