MY HERO recommends this book to young adult readers.
Have you ever stepped into an elevator and wondered what it would feel like if it suddenly fell out of control? Albert Einstein thought about it a lot. Thinking about space and gravity in this way helped Einstein form his General Theory of Relativity, one of the most important scientific ideas of the 20th century. With his wild bushy white hair, Albert Einstein is the symbol of genius. After winning the 1921 Nobel Prize in physics, his genius became famous. This fame would help save his life. Years later, Adolf Hitler and the Nazis would come to power in Germany and millions of Jews would die. Einstein fled Germany, and the well-known scientist was welcomed at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Princeton, New Jersey. Though Albert Einstein is remembered mostly as being a scientific genius, he was also concerned with helping people. During World War II, he assisted many Jews fleeing the Nazis. After the war, the people of Israel asked him to be their president. Einstein declined; he still had unanswered scientific questions to solve. Today, scientists are still hard at work trying to solve some of Einstein's questions.

what intrigues me is the way he thinks.But to think that he used less than 15% of his brain in his entire lifetime makes me wonder what he would have come out with if he was allowed to live two times his lifetime.Hats off to the greatest thinker of our time.

im deeply impressed by einstein's imaginative thinking. Really, he is the greatest scientist ever lived on earth. He has given us a diffrent view of understanding the nature. Hats off to SIR ALBERT EINSTEIN.

I think Albert Einstein is the most important person in my life, although i have no relationship with him, but from now and ever, he is "The Father of my Life," his theory inspired my life a lot, when my i insufficient ideas, the first person i shall think of is him, The Great Albert Einstein.
