    1. Brilliant short book written with passion and knowledge. Airanrhod is a scientist and a great storyteller with a good grasp on both Einstein's theories and his work, she tells both very well and gives an image both of the man and his vision of physics and the universe.It is astonishing to know how much Einstein struggled for a chance and recognition. I knew he had worked in a patent office but hardly knew how much he struggled to make ends meet and to continue to do his work in the middle of nee [...]

    2. In relation to the book “Young Einstein and the story of E=mc2”. I would say on first place that I liked it and secondly, that Mr. Robyn Arianrhod made a good investigation work that allowed him to present us this summary of Albert Einstein junior ages, where Mr. Arianrhod describes the struggles and hard life of both Einstein and his wife Mileva Maric.It is amazing to see how being they so young, came to that abstract concept that lead to the formula E=mc2 and later on to the theory of Rela [...]

    3. I enjoyed this biography. contained critical information. was not long or laborious. the writing style, while light, was not put patronizing. the author intertwined Einstein's personal life with his professional charmingly. learned about Einstein - his bastard son, his divorce, his marriage to his cousin - and his theory of relativity - intellectually piqueing! recommended as a school book for 7th graders on up.

    4. Pretty detailed account of Einstein's college life. I wouldn't have guessed that he flirted with girls while thinking out breakthrough theories. But this book was pretty good. If you want to know about Einstein's college life, this is the book for you.
