The Other Einstein (Sourcebooks) by Marie Benedict offers a window into the fascinating story of Einstein’s first wife. A brilliant physicist in her own right, her contribution to the special theory of relativity is hotly debated and may have been inspired by her own profound and very personal insight. A historical fiction book, it offers readers a window into a brilliant, fascinating woman whose light was lost in Einstein’s enormous shadow.
