A wonderful little compilation of Einstein's thinking
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on July 2, 2020
The Modern Library hardcovers are nice stylish little volumes on the shelf, and they hold up well over several readings so well worth getting one over the paperback edition. I bought this for a scientist colleague of mine at work as a gift for his help during this difficult period, but couldn't resist scrolling through and giving this a read in the days before I could hand it over. While of course you're familiar with Einstein's scientific work, it's truly fascinating to read his thoughts here on a whole host of other topics - Germany in the 1930s, disarmament, education, philosophy. Agree with his ideas and opinions or not, they're interesting little insights into both the man and the subject he's addressing. A must read for those interested in Einstein (or if you've just finished the Walter Isaacson biography and want to go a little deeper)!
