“Dr Frank has unique qualifications for writing a biography of Einstein. Himself an eminent scientist, he has known Einstein long and intimately, and his training as a scientific writer enables him to make Einstein’s discoveries and formulations as understandable to the layman as they ever can be made. Further his familiarity with the social and political background of Einstein’s life has provided him with all that is necessary to present a complete picture of the man.”
Overall condition for the book & jacket – Very Good.
