Reviews

"Recounts [Einstein's] chronicle of errors in clear and engaging prose, giving us in the process a short course in the history of modern physics and a witty and provocative account of the subject's life." -- Darrin M. McMahon - Wall Street Journal "The book's quixotic approach-retelling Einstein's story by homing in on his blunders-makes for good intellectual entertainment... [It] kept me eagerly turning the pages." -- George Johnson - Los Angeles Times "A wonderful story that is well worth taking the time to read...We get a short course in this history of modern physics, one that is well-written and entertaining as well." -- Alan S. McRae - Mathematical Reviews
