Synopsis

Genius A Photobiography of Albert Einstein by Marfe Ferguson Delano

This National Geographic photobiography chronicles the life of one of the most brilliant scientists who ever lived. Through compelling text and stirring archival duotone photographs, the author recounts Einstein's life from his privileged childhood in Austria through the crucial years during World War II, and his death in Princeton, New Jersey. Young readers will learn about Einstein's remarkable theories that still influence the technologies of today and discover the causes he passionately supported such as disarmament and civil liberties. This book will be an ideal complement to middle grades' science curriculum while offering an enlightening perspective of the man whose very name is synonymous with the term 'genius'.

Reviews

While the myriad photographs are fascinating, the bigger draw here is the wonderfully simple explanations of some of Einstein's theories...This entertaining effort displays clarity and intelligence. It has plenty of information for reports and is also a good choice for browsing. starred review, School Library Journal
