Editorial Reviews

Review

“Without the sense of fellowship with men of like mind, of preoccupation with the objective, the eternally unattainable in the field of art and scientific research, life would have seemed to me empty.” —Albert Einstein, Forum and Century “Preceding generations have presented us, in a highly developed science and mechanical knowledge, with a most valuable gift which carries with it possibilities of making our life free and beautiful such as no previous generation has enjoyed. But this gift also brings with it dangers to our existence as great as any that have ever threatened it.” —Albert Einstein, Address to the Students’ Disarmament Meeting --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From AudioFile

The twentieth century's most brilliant scientific thinker shares his views on the meaning of life, governments, economics, disarmament, war, and Judaism. Written mostly in 1932, these short pieces are affecting mainly because they predate WWII, the Holocaust, Israeli-Palestinian wars (Einstein thought they should get along), and the European Common Market. Zimbalist's warm, familiar voice has become raspy with age but retains clarity and authority. He makes no attempt to impersonate Einstein; he merely let the scientist's thoughts speak for themselves. Einstein's letter resigning from the Prussian Academy of Science because of the political climate in Germany (and Hitler had not yet even come to power) and the answer, suggesting that he is spreading false rumors of atrocities, are chilling in hindsight. If the production is not entirely successful, it's due to the lack of overall organization and an introduction.
