En la primera biografia completa de Albert Einstein escrita con acceso a todos sus archivos, Walter Isaacson logra un extraordinario retrato del personaje y de su epoca y un fascinante relato de su vida. Albert Einstein es uno de los cientificos mas importantes de la historia y un icono del siglo XX. Como funcionaba su mente? Que le hizo un genio? Como era el ser humano detras del personaje publico? En la primera biografia completa de Albert Einstein escrita con acceso a todos sus archivos, Walter Isaacson logra un extraordinario retrato del personaje y de su epoca y un fascinante relato de su vida. A partir de la correspondencia privada de Einstein, Isaacson cuenta como un funcionario de patentes imaginativo e impertinente (un mal padre con un matrimonio complicado, incapaz de conseguir un empleo en la universidad ni un doctorado) fue capaz de desvelar los secretos del cosmos y comprender los misterios del atomo y del universo. Su creatividad estaba ligada a su rebeldia, y su exito se baso en cuestionar las verdades aceptadas y en asombrarse ante cuestiones que otros consideraban mundanas. Asi llego a una moral y unas ideas politicas que pasaban por el respeto a las mentes libres, los espiritus libres y los individuos libres. Su fascinante historia demuestra la relacion entre creatividad y libertad. Esplendida, un gran trabajo de investigacion con mucho material inedito. Una obra fundamental y definitiva. Amir D.

Albert Einstein is one of the most important scientists in history and an icon of the twentieth century. How did his mind work? What made him a genius? Who was the man behind the public persona? In the first full biography of Albert Einstein written with access to all his files, Walter Isaacson achieves an extraordinary portrait of the character and the life and time of Albert Einstein. From private correspondence of Einstein, Isaacson tells how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk (who was also a bad father with a complicated marriage, unable to get a job in college or a doctorate) was able to unlock the secrets of the cosmos and understand the mysteries of the atom and the universe. His creativity was linked to his rebellion, and his success was based on questioning accepted truths and marvel at what others considered mundane issues, and his fascinating story demonstrates the relationship between the creative mind and free thinking.

Review Text

Albert Einstein es uno de los científicos más importantes de la historia y un icono del siglo XX. ¿Cómo funcionaba su mente? ¿Qué le hizo un genio? ¿Cómo era el ser humano detrás del personaje público? En la primera biografía completa de Albert Einstein escrita con acceso a todos sus archivos, Walter Isaacson logra un extraordinario retrato del personaje y de su época y un fascinante relato de su vida.

A partir de la correspondencia privada de Einstein, Isaacson cuenta cómo un funcionario de patentes imaginativo e impertinente (un mal padre con un matrimonio complicado, incapaz de conseguir un empleo en la universidad ni un doctorado) fue capaz de desvelar los secretos del cosmos y comprender los misterios del átomo y del universo. Su creatividad estaba ligada a su rebeldía, y su éxito se basó en cuestionar las verdades aceptadas y en asombrarse ante cuestiones que otros consideraban mundanas. Así llegó a una moral y unas ideas políticas que pasaban por el respeto a las mentes libres, los espíritus libres y los individuos libres. Su fascinante historia demuestra la relación entre creatividad y libertad.

«Espléndida, un gran trabajo de investigación con mucho material inédito. Una obra fundamental y definitiva.»
Amir D. Aczel, The Boston Globe

Review quote

"With unmatched narrative skill, Isaacson has managed the extraordinary feat of preserving Einstein's monumental stature while at the same time bringing him to such vivid life that we come to feel as if he could be walking in our midst. This is a terrific work."-- Doris Kearns Goodwin, author of "Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln"
