Einstein: His Life and Universe is the third book written by Walter Isaacson which I’ve just finished (previously: Steve Jobs and The Innovators). For the 3rd time, I was impressed by the wealth of information about Einstein’s life, relationships, struggles, philosophies and of course the field of science which he dedicated his life to – theoretical physics.
Book tells very detailed story about unnoticed and underestimated genius who proposed the most famous equation: E=mc², Theory of Relativity and many other breakthrough theories. Even if they were just theoretical considerations, based on them we could build GPS system, nuclear energy (and atomic bomb), lasers, modern scientific cosmology and many others.
Einstein doesn’t have to be physics professor (actually he wasn’t even a teacher) to perform the most sophisticated thought experiments in the history. It is undoubtedly that his nonconformist personality, curiosity and passions unlocked limitless creativity which accompanied his whole life.
Einstein: His Life and Universe is really good read about how to achieve the mastery. Einstein did it for sure, changing our lives.
I highly recommend this book as a source of inspiration!
