From the Reviews:

"Parker brings us a well-constructed biography that shows how the great scientist's various passions -- for music, learning, peace, women -- existed side by side with, and occassionally affected, his work. ... readers looking for a good introduction to the 20th century's leading physicist will enjoy this." Publisher's Weekly

"Parker covers a lot of territory from Einstein's early life in Germany to his death in America in 1955....readers will be left feeling as if they've been given a valuable opportunity to get to know this brilliant, complicated man. He had his flaws, but oh, what a heart and what a mind." Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinal

"At last we can learn about Albert the man, rather than Einstein, the myth." Sheldon Glashow, Nobel
