This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Apr 22, Robert rated it liked it Shelves: If one respects the fact that this series is aimed at young people young enough to need things like “geometry” and “Fascism” defined for them then I think this is quite a good little book. It’s short and inevitably superficial but I’m not sure how it could be anything else considering the intended audience. Nevertheless it gives an insight into Einstein’s character and at least an indication of the significance of some of his work.
Oct 10, 2 Asha E rated it really liked it. This book is a biography about Albert Einstein. It goes through his life from when he was a young boy to after his death. Some things that you might not know is that as a young boy he was very quiet and had lots of temper tantrums.
Also he hated school, but a college student gave him science books and he loved them. Einstein hated Germany and decided to go to the Swiss Polytechnic. ON his first try he didn’t get in, but they told him to enroll in a local high school. The next year he got into th This book is a biography about Albert Einstein.
The next year he got into the Polytechnic. Once he graduated from the Polytechnic he tried for his PhD. He was declined multiple times,but finally got it. In one year he published 5 papers. Einstein was a pacifist someone who believes in peace.
Albert Einstein helped the world understand science better. Without him our world wouldn’t be the same. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to read about Einstein and his life in a quick book. Aug 12, Connor Ulmer rated it it was amazing. Albert Einstein’s life story from his birth to his death is thoroughly told and well documented in this biography written by Frieda Wishinsky. It is so thorough that it starts and the day he was born and has every life achievement or tragedy in Albert’s life until the day he died.
The difference Culturally from America is when Albert was a young man he had severe anger issues. That, back then was considered the fault of the parents not disciplining the child enough. His parents didn’t take him Albert Einstein’s life story from his birth to his death is thoroughly told and well documented in this biography written by Frieda Wishinsky.
His parents didn’t take him to counseling instead they simply tried to force this behavior out of him. In America parents would seek help from councilors from school and also doctors to help their child. The authors purpose for writing this was purely her job. She is known around the world for her educational books and has won many awards. She wrote this book as an educational book, for students to learn more about Albert Einstein.
I know this because there is a short paragraph on the last page of the book that describes the Author and her works of literature. The theme of the text is Albert Einstein’s life.
I know this because it is a biography about his life’s accomplishments and his very life itself. I would recommend this text to anyone and everyone!
Also who doesn’t like a good visual as their are plenty of alber of places and people that were in Albert’s life that go along with the books contents. Feb 02, Oliver rated it really liked it. The book Albert Einstein by Frieda Wishinsky is a very detailed biography about the life if Albert Einstein and how he became the most famous theoretical scientist that ever lived.
This book was very interesting and made me come up with questions like if being Jewish affected him at all.

I think this is the best biography I have ever read and I liked a,bert because I also want to either be a physicist or engineer when I grow up. Aug 12, Freda Mans-Labianca rated it it was amazing. This was an amazing biography on an even more amazing person of our history.
Albert Einstein is a well-known scientist and great woshinsky, but after reading the book and learning what a family man and unsocial man he was, you learn how real he really was and you admire him more. This was a very well put together book, and Albert would be proud of this as a bio on him. Surely a great book if studying in school, but also if you have an interest.

Throughout this part it talks about how he moves from Germany to Italy, then to Switzerland. It talks about how he goes to college, and meets what will become his wife named Mileva. The book talks about his life a scientist, and all the work he did to benefit the science world. This is just a brief summary of what the book will talk about. I feel like one point the author could have touched on more is during the making of the atomic bomb, it never really went in depth about this, which would’ve eiinstein interesting.
In general the I think the author should’ve talked more about his later life. Some of my favorite points throughout this biography is when he is at college, and when he is a child, because it really talks a lot about his thinking and the developments of his scientific theories. This book appealed to me in a logical way, because it is very interesting to learn bu Albert Einstein, and about his life and what he did. I thought this book and biography was very good and interesting. Sep 05, M.
What few know, however, is that as a young person he struggled albret learning, and had trouble finding a stable means of securing a job as a teacher.
Or, some quirkier tidbits like how he found socks to be useless, and irritating, so he did not wear them. Some of these golden nuggets about Einstein were found in this book. This book is a go-to for a young person Basic Content: This book is a go-to for a young person looking for accurate information for a report on Einstein.
It is organized with pictures and neat text, which is easily accessible for middle-grade readers. However, for those looking for substantial information on the topic of Einstein the man, and his physics work, look elsewhere. The lower rating is not for the content as much as for the editing.
A later edition of this book would be ideal, as there are too many spelling errors and typos for them not to be noticed, and interfere with the reading of what would have been a great book for basic information on Einstein’s life. Jun 18, Munkhbayar Baatarkhuu rated it liked it. The biography is one-sided which I did not like. Here should the last words of Einstein be included.
He said “If I were to live again, I would never want to be a physicist”. Moreover, his great discovery, the theory of relativity is still unclear in his biography. Furthermore, his habit to bathe for hours playing frirda bubbles is not written in this book.
Jun 03, Alissette rated it liked it. So wshinsky while reading this book it has become even more interesting than I thought it would’ve been because it shows alot of facts about when he was a child through an adult and his experiences about something he had created or worked at.
It shows how smart he was, how his personality was and at how hard he worked at something he wanted to achieve at. Feb 25, Esteban added it.
