I finished "Einstein" by Walter Isaacson today.

I finished "Einstein" by Walter Isaacson today, and I'm not altogether sure about it. Despite the fact that I wanted to like Einstein and I've a Chemistry degree, I found the book a hard read. I'm not altogether sure what most non-scientists would think about the science involved, and nearly everyone will think he was a nightmare to his first wife and kids, by the end of this book.

If you can cope with the sensation that your ideals about a hero have been shattered, read this book. If you can't don't.
