From the Publisher. The first full biography of Albert Einstein since all of his papers have become available. His fascinating story is a testament to the connection between creativity and freedom and explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos, the locksmith of the mysteries of the atom and the universe. His success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marveling at mysteries that struck others as mundane. This led him to embrace a morality and politics based on respect for free minds, free spirits, and free individuals.
