Avis de l'équipe

Why we think it's Essential: Isaacson is the modern master of the biography, so it was only natural that he turn his pen to Einstein. And more than any biography of the past, Isaacson's account unravels the life behind the brain and provides a full picture of the man who embodied the scientific spirit of the 20th century. Edward Herrmann is stirring and moves effortlessly from humorous anecdotes to scientific theories. — Chris Doheny

Description

Winner of the 2008 Audie Award for Biography/Memoir

How did Einstein's mind work? What made him a genius? Isaacson's biography shows how his scientific imagination sprang from the rebellious nature of his personality. His fascinating story is a testament to the connection between creativity and freedom.  

Based on the newly released personal letters of Albert Einstein, Walter Isaacson explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk, a struggling father in a difficult marriage who couldn't get a teaching job or a doctorate, became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos, the locksmith of the mysteries of the atom and the universe. His success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marveling at mysteries that struck others as mundane. This led him to embrace a morality and politics based on respect for free minds, free spirits, and free individuals.

These traits are just as vital for this new century of globalization, in which our success will depend on our creativity, as they were for the beginning of the last century, when Einstein helped usher in the modern age.

It's all relative: listen to more about Albert Einstein.

An impactful story of an man worthy of remenbrance

I knew Einstein, but after listening to this book, I can say that I did not know anything about him.
He changed physics, had a healthy lifestyle, and was an sweet man. This guy would have had some serious followers on Twitter !

Lang, aber jede Sekunde lohnt sich

Die Biographie wurde von einem nicht Physiker geschrieben, der aber durchaus versteht die wissenschaftlichen Grundzüge und die Diskussionen darzustellen. Der Schwerpunkt liegt aber vor allem in der Person und der geschichtlichen Einbettung von Albert Einstein. Dies wird von Walter Isaackson großartig gemeistert.
Die sonore Stimme des Sprechers Edward Hermann hält einen immer bei der Geschichte in dem er ausdrucksstark doch nie übertrieben spricht. Sein distinguiertes Englisch gleichwohl von einem Amerikaner hebt ihn aus der Menge der Sprecher heraus.

Zu viele wissenschaftliche Ausführungen

Im Hörbuch werden Einsteins und dessen Physiker-Kollegen relevanten Theorien erläutert. Diese Passagen sind zahlreich und erschöpfend.
