Einstein for Beginners Einstein for Beginners by Joseph Schwartz, Michael McGuinness (Contributor)
. One of the first in the series of For Beginners documentary comic books, Einstein for Beginners still holds up as a perfect introduction to the life and work of Albert Einstein. It has been said that only a small percentage of people really understand Einstein's theories, but this book goes a long way towards making them accessible to everyone. Buy this book

Einstein's Miraculous Year: Five Papers That Changed the Face of Physics by John J. Stachel (Editor), Roger Penrose
. In 1905, Einstein shattered many cherished scientific beliefs in five great papers that would establish him as the world's leading physicist. For the first time, this book brings those papers together in an accessible format. The Introduction by editor John Stachel explains the papers' development and historical significance.

World As I See It World As I See It by Albert Einstein
. The Einstein revealed in these writings is witty, keenly perceptive, and deeply concerned for humanity. Einstein believed in the possibility of a peaceful world and in the high mission of science to serve human well-being. As we near the end of a century in which science has come to seem more and more remote from human values, Einstein's perspective is indispensable. Buy this book

Ideas and Opinions (Modern Library) by Albert Einstein, Alan Lightman (Introduction)
. Ideas and Opinions is the most definitive collection of Albert Einstein's popular writings, gathered under the supervision of Einstein himself. The selections cover works from his earliest days up to his death in 1955. Buy this book

Meaning of Relativity Meaning of Relativity by Albert Einstein
. In 1921, five years after the appearance of his comprehensive paper on general relativity and twelve years before he left Europe permanently to join the Institute for Advanced Study, Albert Einstein visited Princeton University, where he delivered the Stafford Little Lectures for that year. These four lectures constituted an overview of his then controversial theory of relativity. Buy this book

Relativity: The Special and the General Theory by Albert Einstein
. How better to learn the Special Theory of Relativity and the General Theory of Relativity than directly from their creator, Albert Einstein himself? In Relativity: The Special and the General Theory, Einstein describes the theories that made him famous, illuminating his case with numerous examples and a smattering of math (nothing more complex than high-school algebra). Buy this book

Principle of Relativity Principle of Relativity by Albert Einstein
. The original papers that led to the development of special and general relativity are reprinted in this volume. A knowledge of calculus and vector geometry is a prerequisite. This is a good holiday gift for a physics graduate student or advanced undergraduate. Buy this book

Einstein Lived Here: Essays for the Layperson by Abraham Pais
. The author of the definitive Einstein scientific biography 'Subtle Is the Lord . . .' turns his attention to the great physicist's life outside of science. Pais offers an informal, almost kaleidoscopic portrait of Einstein, from his troubled marriages and neglected children to his thoughts on religion, philosophy and politics. Buy this book

Hyperspace Subtle Is the Lord: The Science and the Life of Albert Einstein by Abraham Pais
. Pais is a renowned physicist and was a close friend of Einstein's, so this densely detailed scientific biography of Einstein requires some prior experience in physics or mathematics. Pais gives the reader a privileged front-row seat to the most thrilling times in theoretical physics, when relativity was a new theory and the enormous implications, both good and evil, were just becoming apparent to the scientific community and the public alike.

Who Got Einstein's Office? by Edward Regis, Ed Regis
. This is the fascinating history of New Jersey's Institute for Advanced Study, which was home to Albert Einstein and thirteen other Nobel laureates, and most of the century's greatest mathematicians and physicists, including Kurt Godel, and J. Robert Oppenheimer. Buy this book
