The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent condition, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them.

Albert Einstein—mathematician, physicist, Nobel prize winner—was to many people the greatest scientist of this century. He fought actively for peace and led the campaign against the atomic bomb before most people had begun to realize the full implications of such a weapon.

This book is an attempt to describe the importance of his discoveries in the various fields of physics and their significance in the modern world. It is also the story of a humble and dedicated man who once summarized his aims as follows:

"The life of the individual only has meaning in so far as it aids making the life of every living thing nobler and more beautiful".

This is a most provocative and stimulating book for the young student more advanced in science.
