Publisher's Summary

Thanks to his monumental accomplishments, Albert Einstein's name is synonymous with genius. With his famous E=MC² and insights into quantum physics, this legendary scientist not only revolutionized the way we understand the universe, but paved the way for such diverse technology as lasers, cell phones, electron microscopes, DVD players, atomic weaponry, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Featuring kid-friendly explanations of the scientific principles, this compelling biography follows Einstein from his childhood through his early career struggles, and on to the theoretical breakthroughs and groundbreaking writings that won him the Nobel Prize. Equally important, we get a complete portrait of the man, who - deeply affected by the Holocaust - dedicated his life to pacifism and equal rights for all.

A short, nice biography

Where does Sterling Biographies rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Was surprised to learn that Einstein was a flirtatious guy, with good humour and a very moral, loving view on life and living creatures. He wasn't exactly an angel either though, when it comes to his personal relationships. But hey - nobody's perfect:)

This book gives a balanced, engaging look.


What about A. C. Fellner’s performance did you like?

Narration is top notch.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh yes.

Fair Biography

I bought this audio book out of curiosity, to know more about Albert Einstein, his life and his work.
I think it did it in a reasonable way, covering his personal and scientific career, though this last aspect, turned out to be boring for me to listen to... Never the less necessary, to fit in to the book over all context.
Over all I rate it a 3 Star
