Einstein s enduring public image has to do with the style of his science and social world around him. This book gives a glimpse of his science, philosophy, and his troubled personal life. Einstein once remarked Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone. This book is written according to this belief and contains no equations or complicated scientific data so that even a layperson can have a close look at the genius of one of the greatest scientist ever born.Preface Family History Important dates Einstein s Credo Einstein: The Person of the Century Einstein: His Early Life (1879 1904) Einstein s Annus Mirabilis (1905) Einstein and the Mass Energy Relation: E = mc2 Einstein and the Special Theory of Relativity Einstein and Quantum Theory Einstein: 1906 1920 Einstein and the Nobel Prize Einstein s Two Sons: Hans Albert and Eduard Albert Einstein: 1921 1933 Einstein and the Atom Bomb Einstein: His Pacifism and His Interactions with Gandhi Einstein: His God and His Religion Einstein and His Princetion Years (1933 1955) Appendix A: A Justification of the Mass-Energy Relation Appendix B: The Energy Liberated from the Sun Appendix C: Time Dilation Appendix D: Stimulated Emission Appendix E: The Szilard Petition to President Truman References.
