The image of Einstein as a secular saint had been sustained by Otto Nathan, Einstein's close friend and executor, and Helen Dukas, Einstein's loyal secretary. But, gradually in the years since Einstein's death in 1955, the more personal and authentic details of Einstein the man have been made public and Denis Brian has had access to previously unrevealed detail. "Einstein, A Life" is based on 20 years of research, including access to the Einstein Papers at Boston University, USA, and interviews with close friends and associates willing to discuss Einstein. Denis Brian has also interviewed contemporary scientists, including Victor Weisskopf and Murray Gell-Mann, which enables the general reader to fully understand the scientific aspects of Einstein's life and career. For the first time Denis Brian reveals photographs such as Einstein's brain and the scientist's report on what it shows. The book covers his private, public and scientific life, including new information on his first and second marriage, and the tragic life of his schizophrenic son, Eduard. Einstein's former assistants Banesh Hoffman and John Kemeny talk about his work, and his meetings with Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung are discussed.
