Product Overview

When he was born in 1879, Albert was a peculiarly fat baby with an unusually big and misshaped head. When he was older, he hit his sister, frustrated his teachers, and had few friends. But Alberts strange childhood also included his brilliant capacity for puzzles and problem solving: the mystery of a compasss swirling needle, the intricacies of Mozarts music, the secrets of geometryset his mind spinning with ideas. In fact, Albert Einsteins ideas were destined to change the way we know and understand the world and our place in the universe.
In spare, precise text filled with graceful detail and accompanied by sometimes humorous, sometimes lonely portraits, Don Brown introduces us to the less than magnificent beginnings of an odd boy out. The result is a tender rendering of the adventures of growing up for one of the most important thinkers of the twentieth century.
