Even more, the plot is layered with twists and riddles that will keep the readers guessing all the way through the end. Wakely does a good job using the characters and situations to study the human condition.
He is best known for his theories on relativity and theories of matter and heat. Einstein is considered one of the greatest physicists of all time because he is thought to have changed the way one looks at the universe. Einstein was born in Ulm, southern Germany, to Jewish parents.
A year after he was born he moved to Munich, Germany. Einstein showed no signs of being a genius at an early age. He did not like to receive instructions in school, therefore his education had to begin at home.
He would still have to attend school in Munich though, and would get exceptional grades especially in Mathematics; however, he hated it, a teacher suggested him to leave and just study at home because of his dislike toward the school.
Merely his presence caused the other students to disrespect the teachers. A story that Einstein loved to tell was that he once saw a compass and saw that the needle had a northward swing.
He knew there was something behind it and he wanted to know the hidden mysteries. He would help him and encourage him to go on and never give up. Einstein loved to solve the algebraic and geometrical problems on his own. At the age of twelve he read a couple of books on Euclid Geometry and learned the whole thing on his own.
At the age of fourteen he read a few science books and the books had an immense influence on his life. At the age of fifteen his parents moved to Milan, Italy, Einstein took this opportunity to drop out of the school in Munich. He spent a year just living with his parents and reading.
Albert then realized that he needed to do something in life. He decided to finish school in Aarau, Switzerland. Inhe tried to enter into the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology a type of university.
He took the entrance exam, failed it, and passed it the second time. In the institute Albert realized that his true love was Physics. Albert hated that school also, so much was his dislike toward the school, that he would not even attend the classes.
He would rather stay home and do experiments and have his friend take notes for him, then he would just study the notes on his own and take the tests.Essays by Isaac Asimov about physics Copyright © by Edward Seiler and Richard Hatcher.
