Jurgen Neffe is affiliated with the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science.
"Neffe gives us the full Einstein, warts and all. Crucially, he is as sound on the physics as he is sensitive to the great physicist's troubled personal life." -- Jon Agar, University of Cambridge "Neffe has written the most current and dynamic Einstein biography now on the market. His words magnificently restore Einstein to life." -- Handelsblatt "An intelligent, beautifully crafted narrative, enhanced with ample documentation, makes this book a pleasure to read ... This work will set the standard for all future biographies." -- Spektrum der Wissenschaften "Neffe's extraordinary ability to convey complex information in a manner that will appeal to a general audience in just under five hundred dazzling pages is particularly evident in the passages on Einstein's theories of the dual nature of light, of gravitation, and of spacetime, which are cleverly incorporated into accounts of the history of physics." -- Neue Zurcher Zeitung
