The Other Einstein

I just finished The Other Einstein.  This book is Fiction but much of it is based on real life happenings, well researched by the author.  I had no knowledge of Albert Einstein, except for the well known facts.  Little did I know of his personal life. This book was an eye opener.  The other Einstein refers to his first wife, Mileva.......a brilliant, maybe more brilliant, scientist than her husband.   Their story is a compelling one. His need to be the exceptional and famous scientist, even though many of his papers came from her. She never received any credit, and he actually removed her name from the authorship.

This book made me angry. I understand it was a different time, but I desperately wanted her to stand up for herself.  As much as I want to say more........you need to read the book!

An important book for these times.....for any times.
