about

"Another standout in a uniformly stellar series.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“[An] engrossing and remarkably accessible biography.” —The Horn Book
 Albert Einstein. His name has become a synonym for genius. His wild case of bedhead and playful sense of humor made him a media superstar—the first, maybe only, scientist-celebrity. He wasn't much for lab work; in fact he had a tendency to blow up experiments. What he liked to do was think, not in words but in "thought experiments". What was the result of all his thinking? Nothing less than the overturning of Newtonian physics. Once again, Kathleen Krull delivers a witty and astute look at one of the true Giants of Science and the turbulent times in which he lived.

Kathleen Krull, the noted social historian, lives in San Diego, California. Boris Kulikov, the illustrator of the series, lives in New York City.
