Críticas:
"All of us who lack Einstein's intellectual and spiritual gifts owe a debt of gratitude to Princeton University Press for having humanized him in this innovative way."--Timothy Ferris, The New York Times Book Review

"Masquerading as a quote book, this title may set a new standard for the genre as well as expand the concept. It is filled with the written and spoken thoughts of this cultural icon as well as those merely attributed to him but conveys much more than a traditional collection of sayings might."--The Bloomsbury Review

"This fascinating book reveals Einstein as a fully rounded human, with both a tender and a darker, more brooding side."--Physics World

"The chief value of this collection of [Einstein's] more memorable observations on the events of the 20th century and his own part in them is that it reveals the development of the person as well as that of the scientist. [The Quotable Einstein] is something of a triumph."--New Scientist

Reseña del editor:

Tens of thousands of people enjoyed the first edition of The Quotable Einstein. This enlarged and updated version offers even more fascinating insight into Time magazine's "Man of the Century." The Expanded Quotable Einstein includes about 375 new quotations and covers topics that have recently appeared in the media--such as the most current research on Einstein's brain, the possible collaboration of his wife Mileva in his work, and the newly discovered love letters that Einstein sent to an alleged Soviet spy. An entirely new section on music has been added, the section on science has been expanded greatly, and new photographs add fresh visual appeal. Finally, the new appendix contains an account of the editor's personal peek into the FBI's Einstein file and shows us Einstein's famous letter to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, which ushered in the atomic age in the United States.


Einstein continues to be a global icon as we enter the new millennium, and this new edition shows us why. The revelation that he was, after all, a human being in his personal life rather than a secular "saint" has detracted neither from his fame nor from his great scientific achievements. Above all, Einstein is shown to be a loyal letter writer, keeping up a lively correspondence with those whom he loved and respected, and expressing an opinion on just about everything and everyone, including himself.


Much more than a series of soundbites, this book of documented quotations and supplementary information about Einstein's life, family, and work puts his thoughts into context. A fairly complete biographical account of this multifaceted man emerges--as son, husband, father, lover, scientist, philosopher, aging widower, humanitarian, and friend. It shows us vividly why the real and imagined Einstein continues to fascinate people the world over
