The biographer of Leonardo da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin, and Steve Jobs here argues that the intellect that distinguished Albert Einstein's science sprang from the rebellious nature of his personality. Walter Isaacson portrays an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk—a struggling father in a difficult marriage, unable to get a teaching job or a doctorate—who investigated the nature of the universe by questioning conventional wisdom and marveling at mysteries that struck others as mundane. This brilliant life of Einstein inspired the inaugural 10-part presentation of the National Geographic Channel's new dramatic series Genius, produced by Ron Howard and starring Geoffrey Rush.

"In this highly readable, articulate book, [Walter] Isaacson brings the eminent scientist to life, dismissing myths (for example, that Einstein failed math) as well as recreating the world he inhabited and transformed. Aided by 21st-century scientists like Brian Greene, Isaacson explains Einstein's theories in laymen's terms.... He writes with affection and deep admiration for his subject, but he doesn't ignore his failings."—Bookmarks Magazine
