In Einstein in Love, Dennis Overbye has written the first profile of the great scientist to focus exclusively on his early adulthood, when his major discoveries were made. It reveals Einstein to be very much a young man of his time-draft dodger, self-styled bohemian, poet, violinist, and cocky, charismatic genius who left personal and professional chaos in his wake.

As Dennis Overbye explains in the introduction to Eiinstein in Love, his first book since the National Book Critics Circle and Los Angeles Times Book Award nominee Lonely Hearts of the Cosmos, his primary goal is to separate the man "Albert" from the myth "Einstein", to restore humanity and individuality and shaded nuance to a man who has become the most monolithic figure. in the scientific pantheon

Though Dennis Overbye does not speak German, the style of his writings is very much . Also, it does not go beyond Einstein in Berlin (1933).

Also, it does not go beyond Einstein in Berlin (1933). But a scientific movie, almost made for the physicists and mathematicians of this world and all their students.

While separated from wife #1, Mileva, Albert wrote to her a completely one-sided contract of reconciliation (p 267). When she accepted his terms, he backed out because she didn't show proper appreciation for his "generous" offer. During this time, he was having an affair with Elsa (eventual 2nd wife), but this was muddied when he also fell in love with Elsa's daughter, Ilse. Being a little more wishy-washy in romance than he was in physics, he let the women work it out as to who he was going to marry! They decided on Elsa. Many years later, Elsa allowed him to carry on an affair twice a week with a certain woman as long as he remained chaste otherwise. As Albert wrote in a poem to a friend, "the upper half thinks and plans, but the lower half determines our fate."

Thanks to Overbye's superb research, we are presented with a history of Albert (as the author always calls him) directly from letters and documents mostly written by Einstein himself. Not by any means limited to his romantic life, we are treated to an in-depth discussion of how he worked his physics out. For example, far from isolated while a patent clerk in his miracle year of 1905, he was actively corresponding with several other physicists, editing scientific journals and conducting "think tanks" about theoretical physics with friends, including wife #1, Mileva. Most of his adult life, he conducted an active social life centered around these think tanks with revolving membership, sometimes involving entertaining others with his excellent violin playing, and frequently women. When he landed his first teaching job, he was unpleasantly surprised by the time and effort it took to compose a decent a comprehensible set of lectures. He toiled conscientiously over his talks, eventually becoming a sought after keynote speaker who would lecture two hours daily for several days at prestigious conventions about subjects involving aspects of relativity.

Overbye has written a brilliantly insightful book that brings into focus Albert's creative and unique approach to physics along with his sometimes "teen-ager in love" approach to romance. Scattered throughout the book are first hand looks at many famous scientists of the day, including other Nobel prize winners in their correspondence and first hand interactions with the charming Einstein. If I must criticize this book, it does seem to end rather abruptly, and covers the last 25 years of his life in very few pages. Perhaps another book is lurking in Overbye's mind for these years, for which there are undoubtedly volumes of more correspondence from the prolific Albert Einstein. A very enthusiastic 5 stars for this exhilarating read.

After studying a large number of published and unpublished letters for a decade, Dennis Overbye, the author of another well-written book "Lonely Hearts of the Cosmos," successfully portrayed young Albert Einstein from the two sides of his personal life and scientific endeavor. In "Einstein in Love" Albert is depicted vividly as a lad who loved his former physics classmate Mileva and constantly tackled the most profound problems of physics. The author also writes in detail about the social and scientific backgrounds of the time and views of the places Albert lived in. Albert's marriage with Mileva comes to an unhappy ending. Then he marries his cousin Elsa. Albert's dark side during the years of these events does not elude Overbye's polished writing. In the section about Albert's relation to the physicist Hendrik Lorentz, the author writes, "Albert was the eternal outsider"; and at another place, "When it came to women he could be like a child." These words cogently summarize the human side of the scientific giant.
A reviewer who is an expert in physics (A. J. Kox for "Physics Today") has criticized that Overbye's discussion of science is not always accurate. The present reviewer thinks that if the description of physics were made more compact, this book would have been much more absorbing. Inclusion of a chronological table might have been a good idea. It is a little disappointing that the source of citation is often of secondary nature; for example, "Bartlett's Familiar Quotations" is cited many times. However, these are only minor defects. This is a laboriously and skillfully written book to be read by all those who love passion and science and revere "Time" magazine's Man of the Century.

A look into Einstein's personal life and his first and second marriages. His personal life was not as successful and his scientific studies.

I have really enjoyed reading it. It is clear the author knows Einstein, better than any other book on him I have read.

This book starts off dry and doesn't really get anything going for about 100 pages. Boring book. The purchase experience was great though.

As a speaker at the 1918 symposium held at the German Physics Society in honour of Max Plank's 60th Birthday, Albert Einstein, argued that science was an emotional, not a logical calling, a lover's quest. For me, this reminder serves as the central theme of this wonderful biography of Einstein. The love of the title is about both Einstein's emotional and scientific life and how they weaved together and effected each other. Near the close of the book, Overbye tells the reader that "The genius of abstraction who needs a woman to ground him in the world is a cliché....in Albert's case the cliché is turned inside out. It was with physics that he needed to ground himself in the surreal fog of desire and the dizzying claims of the belly and other organs..." Einstein's love life was complicated and messy and his science was often an escape. This is the central story Overbye tells, and he tells it extremely well.
The book concentrates on the years 1905 to 1916, the years of Einstein's great scientific triumphs, beginning with the 1905 miracle year (photoelectric effect, special relativity and Brownian motion) to the crowning glory of the general Theory of Relativity. Against this backdrop is the gradual deterioration and collapse of his marriage to Mileva and his affair with Elsa. The books fulcrum is 1915 and 1916 as he completes GTR and his marriage ends. Throughout there is a great balance between the science and the personal and Overbye is very good at anchoring the story with in the wider context of history, especially the First World War. The science is explained with great care and detail, but does not take away from the story.
If you want to understand Einstein the scientist and human being, then this is the place to start. Highly recommended.
