‘Fascinating and vivid’ CARLO ROVELLI


The Nobel Prize-winning physicist who discovered relativity, black holes and E = mc2, Einstein was also a high-school failure with an FBI file 1,400 pages long.

From his lost daughter to escaping the Nazis, from dining with Charlie Chaplin to refusing the Presidency of Israel, Einstein in Time and Space tells 99 unexpected stories of the man who redefined how we view our universe and our place within it.

‘Unforgettable’ the i, Book of the Month
‘Compelling’ Wall Street Journal


Mail on Sunday
For all the thousands of biographies previously written of him, I think Graydon has done a fine and often fascinating job here, and anyone with an interest in science and scientists will absolutely lap this up
i Paper
A masterful biography and a hugely entertaining read
Literary Review
An intriguing, mosaic-like portrait of the great physicist
Sky At Night
A great biography. Einstein is not treated as an unknowable genius, but as a flawed individual with interesting stories . . . an incredibly enjoyable read
Wall Street Journal
A fresh take . . . compelling and beautifully written. Enhances our understanding of both a great scientist and an exemplary humanist
Church Times
An immensely readable work about the man himself, collected into 99 short, mostly two-page, chapters, exploring his scientific ideas, quoting his letters, and telling many revealing anecdotes.
Physics World
Gems about this icon of modern physics continue to be written because he is such a rich subject, with more original sources referring to him becoming public every year. Still, it does take a new angle on Einstein to get publishers and reviewers excited. Samuel Graydon has achieved just that.
Fascinating . . . this vivid book can enrich us all.
A mosaic biography of an exceptional scientist . . . [pieced together] with illuminating skill, style, candour and charm
