About the book:

A shocking portrait of the greatest genius of this century. So intensely guarded and obscured were the details of Einstein's personal life that it took the authors six months to gain permission to quote from Einstein's correspondence, and even then many letters could only be paraphrased. The book reveals that the Nobel Prize-winner whose genius and work for peace have long been associated with a kind of personal nobility had an adulterous, egomaniacal, and misogynist side with which very few people are familiar.

"A deeply melancholic and moving tale that forces its readers to grapple with the enigma of the Einstein myth."--The Economist
