Synopsis

Albert Einstein was one of the most brilliant scientists who ever lived. The theories that he formulated about time, light and gravity have changed how we look at the world, and resulted in many new inventions. But did you know that he was so absent-minded that he once forgot where he lived? Or that, even though he was an advocate of world peace, his work led to the creation of the atom bomb? Using photographs, maps, quotes, letters and drawings, this biography in the Snapshots: Images of People and Places in History series introduces young readers to Albert Einstein. Also included are a timeline of his life and a list of places to visit to learn more about one of history's greatest thinkers.
