Einstein: The Formative Years

Written on July 10, 2011. Written by .

This is basically a collection of academic papers about Einstein’s work prior to general relativity. I have to say that it is pretty bad because the information is so indirect and worthless that it is extremely boring. When you write entire sections on the biography of the person who wrote a book that Einstein once said was good, you are going to lose the attention of most readers. The authors make a lot of assumptions about influences on Einstein, which I disliked because I think it is wrong to give credit to someone just because Einstein read their writings. The book does go into some discussion of the scientific development of Einstein’s 1905 papers, but there is not enough detail to follow unless you already are already familiar with them.
