Albert Einstein wasn't afraid to think for himself. Working as a clerk in the patent office in Bern, Switzerland, he wrote papers with fantastical theories—that light is both a wave and a particle; that matter can become energy, and energy can become matter; that space can "bend," and time is relative. His revolutionary theories turned the world of physics upside down, and earned him a Nobel Prize. Einstein and the Time Machine tells the story of one of the greatest thinkers of the 20th century, as well as the basics of his Theory of Relativity. 


"…this is an illuminating profile that takes as proper note of the great brain's pacifism as it does of his revolutionary ideas." —Kirkus Reviews

"A good biographical purchase for libraries where Penguin's 'Who Was?' series is popular." —School Library Journal
