Allan Powell: New find of an old book sheds light on Einstein
Socrates has written: “The unexamined life is not worth living.” It can be said with assurance that the great physicist, Albert Einstein, has been thoroughly examined — inwardly by his introspective efforts and at a distance by his admirers and detractors. Recently, on a used book shelf, I found an older (1947) biography of this unique person that I regard as the best account I have read.
