The definitive, internationally bestselling biography of Albert Einstein. Now the basis of Genius, the ten part National Geographic series on the life of Albert Einstein, starring the Oscar, Emmy, and Tony Award­ winning actor Geoffrey Rush as Einstein.

How did his mind work? What made him a genius? Isaacson’s biography shows how Einstein’s scientific imagination sprang from the rebellious nature of his personality. His fascinating story is a testament to the connection between creativity and freedom. Einstein explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk a struggling father in a difficult marriage who couldn’t get a teaching job or a doctorate 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.
