Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking

Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking. From the work that "made" modern scientific thought and his important discoveries, to his later musings on his landmark findings and his philosophical essays on Zionism and other important issues of the 20th Century, "Einstein" is the most extensive anthology of the scientist, and the only one to provide the wide breadth of his work. The works included in the anthology include: "The Principle of Relativity" (1920); "Space-Time" (1929); "About Zionism" (1930); "Cosmic Religion" (1931); "The World.

Albert Einstein still has a living grandson, Bernhard Caesar Einstein (born in 1930). But isn’t it about time, and without wishing Bernhard dead, that Einstein’s work joined the intellectual mainstream, rather than continuing to be regarded as impossibly difficult and avant-garde?

Albert Einstein still has a living grandson, Bernhard Caesar Einstein (born in 1930). But isn’t it about time, and without wishing Bernhard dead, that Einstein’s work joined the intellectual mainstream, rather than continuing to be regarded as impossibly difficult and avant-garde? Other savants of the early 20th century have been thoroughly digested. Freud’s ideas, odd and wrongheaded as some of them seem, are commonplaces.

A Stubbornly Persistent Illusion : The Essential Scientific Works of Albert Einstein. PW has called it "a gem of a collection" while New Scientist magazine notes the "thrill of reading Einstein's own words. From the writings that revealed the famous Theory of Relativity, to other papers that shook the scientific world of the 20th century, A Stubbornly Persistent Illusion belongs in every science fan's library.

Best-selling author and physicist Stephen Hawking assembles the most groundbreaking works by Albert Einstein together into one volume. From the text that revealed the famous “Theory of Relativity”-renowned as the most important scientific discovery of the 20th Century-to his significant works on quantum theory, statistical mechanics, and the photoelectric effect, here are the writings that changed physics, and subsequently, the way we view the world. Einstein also thought deeply on both political issues and religious thought, so many of Einstein's philosophical essays are included. Hawking provides introductions to each work, which provides both historical and scientific perspective. From the papers that shaped modern scientific thought to Einstein's later musings on his landmark findings, A Stubbornly Persistent Illusion is a collection of Einstein's most important work, with commentary from our greatest living physicist.

If you're looking for a good introduction to Einstein's discoveries, this is not it. I recommend Relativity Simply Explained,The Elegant Universe (chapters 2 & 3), and Einstein: His Life and Universe as great introductions to his life and work.

If you want the essential scientific works of Einstein all in one beautiful book, this is it.

Granted, this is a *selection* from his writings, so you could have a more complete collection by buying his other books individually. But at more than 450 pages, this is a generous collection. And if Hawking thinks these are the essential works, I'm inclined to believe him. It's a mixed bag of popular writings, scientific autobiography, lectures, essays, and original papers.

The contents are as follows, each with a brief introduction by Hawking:

1. Selections from The Principle of Relativity - 7 original papers by Einstein from 1905-1919, including the original papers proposing the theory of relativity and E=mc2.

2. Relativity: The Special and General Theory - the complete contents, with the exception of Appendix V.

3. Sidelights on Relativity

4. Selections from The Meaning of Relativity

5. Selections from The Evolution of Physics

6. Autobiographical Notes

7. Selections from Out of My Later Years

(Shame on the publishers for making Hawking's named bigger than Einstein on the cover and for putting "Hawking on Einstein" on the spine when in fact "Einstein on Einstein" would be more accurate.)

For anyone who wants to read Einstein's explanations of his greatest discoveries, this is the book to get.

Where to begin? Hawking covers the spectrum on Einstein in this book. There are thousands of books on Einstein and his works, but this is a rare one where it goes into practicality and the reasons for Einstein's curiosities. Hawking covers the Einstein basics while shedding new light and giving insight as well as breaking down into more digestible chunks of information. This book is a great introductory into Einstein theory, or as a refresher with new perspectives for those of us who are well versed in physics and mathematics. A very good read from Hawking.
you secret
Great Book, Not for the light reader....

I have math phobia I thought this was a book with Mr. Hawking discussing his works, making it simpler. I might learn something anyway.

ALOT OF INFO. STILL GOING THRU

In the true fashion of Stephen Hawking, great book. I recommend it to anyone wishing to stretch their mind. It came in when they said it would.
