Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Beauty I picked up this book as one person, and came out another. The honesty, clarity, emotion, and intellgence within this book will change you to. Humans tend to spend life creating their own worlds. Few men have spent as much time forming a clear, beautiful, and moral world view, Einstein is one of them. Read this book and let it form a peice of your world.

He finished secondary school in Aarau, Switzerland and entered the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. Einstein graduated in 1900, by studying the notes of a classmate since he did not attend his classes out of boredom, again.

In 1905, he received his doctorate from the University of Zurich for a theoretical dissertation on the dimension of molecules. Einstein also published three theoretical papers of central importance to the development of 20th Century physics. The first was entitled "Brownian Motion," and the second "Photoelectric Effort," which was a revolutionary way of thinking and contradicted tradition. No one accepted the proposals of the first two papers. Then the third one was published in 1905 and called "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies." Einstein's words became what is known today as the special theory of relativity and said that the physical
