Historically Interesting but Quite Dated
This is a collection of Einstein letters, speeches and essays from his later years after 1934. The narration is very clear and straightforward. The introduction indicates this is the second volume of essays, the first volume being “The World as I See It”, which, it seems is not available on Audible. There is a huge overlap between this volume and “Essays in Humanism” and “The Theory of Relativity”. This volume includes Einstein’s thoughts on science and society, pacifism, world government, Zionism, humanism, and other topics. Many of these essays are dated other than for a personal or historical perspective. Although relativity and quantum theory are discussed here, this is definitely not the best place to start learning these subjects.
