73 Reviews
A selection of short pieces written by Einstein during the period between 1922 and 1934. Each piece shares the great thinker's views on life, government, economics, disarmament, war and Judaism in a collection that becomes all the more remarkable for its hindsight view of casual thoughts that history has proven to be prophecies - and all the more unique for displaying the author of those prophecies as a deeply rounded, warm human being. Genius affirmed, demystified and validated.
