Description: En la primera biografía completa de Albert Einstein escrita con acceso a todos sus archivos, Walter Isaacson logra un extraordinario retrato del personaje y de su época y un fascinante relato de su vida.Albert Einstein es uno de los científicos más importantes de la historia y un icono del siglo XX. ¿Cómo funcionaba su mente? ¿Qué le hizo un genio? ¿Cómo era el ser humano detrás del personaje público? En la primera biografía completa de Albert Einstein escrita con acceso a todos sus archivos, Walter Isaacson logra un extraordinario retrato del personaje y de su época y un fascinante relato de su vida. A partir de la correspondencia privada de Einstein, Isaacson cuenta cómo un funcionario de patentes imaginativo e impertinente (un mal padre con un matrimonio complicado, incapaz de conseguir un empleo en la universidad ni un doctorado) fue capaz de desvelar los secretos del cosmos y comprender los misterios del átomo y del universo. Su creatividad estaba ligada a su rebeldía, y su éxito se basó en cuestionar las verdades aceptadas y en asombrarse ante cuestiones que otros consideraban mundanas. Así llegó a una moral y unas ideas políticas que pasaban por el respeto a las mentes libres, los espíritus libres y los individuos libres. Su fascinante historia demuestra la relación entre creatividad y libertad.«Espléndida, un gran trabajo de investigación con mucho material inédito. Una obra fundamental y definitiva.» Amir D. Aczel, The Boston GlobeIn the first full biography of Albert Einstein written with access to all his files, Walter Isaacson achieved an extraordinary portrait of the character and his time, and a fascinating account of his life.    Albert Einstein is one of the most important scientists in history and an icon of the twentieth century. How did his mind work? What made him a genius? Who was the man behind the public persona? In the first full biography of Albert Einstein written with access to all his files, Walter Isaacson achieves an extraordinary portrait of the character and the life and time of Albert Einstein. From private correspondence of Einstein, Isaacson tells how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk (who was also a bad father with a complicated marriage, unable to get a job in college or a doctorate) was able to unlock the secrets of the cosmos and understand the mysteries of the atom and the universe. His creativity was linked to his rebellion, and his success was based on questioning accepted truths and marvel at what others considered mundane issues, and his fascinating story demonstrates the relationship between the creative mind and free thinking.
