Einstein : his life and universe /
By Isaacson, Walter,
Includes bibliographical references (pages 553-564) and index.The first full biography of Albert Einstein since all of his papers have become available shows how his scientific imagination sprang from the rebellious nature of his personality. Biographer Isaacson explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk--a struggling father in a difficult marriage who couldn't get a teaching job or a doctorate--became the locksmith of the mysteries of the atom and the universe. His success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marveling at mysteries that struck others as mundane. This led him to embrace a morality and politics based on respect for free minds, free spirits, and free individuals. These traits are just as vital for this new century of globalization, in which our success will depend on our creativity, as they were for the beginning of the last century, when Einstein helped usher in the modern age.--From publisher description.The light-beam rider -- Childhood, 1879-1896 -- The Zurich Polytechnic, 1896-1900 -- The lovers, 1900-1904 -- The miracle year: quanta and molecules, 1905 -- Special relativity, 1905 -- The happiest thought, 1906-1909 -- The wandering professor, 1909-1914 -- General relativity, 1911-1915 -- Divorce, 1916-1919 -- Einstein's universe, 1916-1919 -- Fame, 1919 -- The wandering Zionist, 1920-1921 -- Nobel laureate, 1921-1927 -- Unified field theories, 1923-1931 -- Turning fifty, 1929-1931 -- Einstein's God -- The refugee, 1932-1933 -- America, 1933-1939 -- Quantum entanglement, 1935 -- The bomb, 1939-1945 -- One-worlder, 1945-1948 -- Landmark, 1948-1953 -- Red scare, 1951-1954 -- The end, 1955 -- Epilogue: Einstein's brain and Einstein's mind.

Winter's graces : the surprising gifts of later life /
By Stewart, Susan Avery,
Includes bibliographical references."Filled with unexpected good news about growing older, Winter's Graces highlights eleven qualities that ripen with age--including audacious authenticity, creative ingenuity, necessary fierceness, self-transcending generosity, and a growing capacity to savor life and to ride its ups and downs with humor and grace. Decades of research have established that the catastrophic conditions often associated with late life, such as severe dementia and debilitating frailty, are the exception, not the rule. Still, the mistaken idea that aging equals devastating decline persists, causing enormous and unnecessary suffering, especially for women. Drawing on decades of experience as a psychology professor and psychotherapist, Susan Stewart, PhD, weaves together inspiring folk stories that illustrate the graces of winter and recent research that validates them, along with a wealth of user-friendly tools and practices for amplifying these graces and bringing them to life. Written primarily for women over 50 seeking good news about growing older, Winter's Graces offers adults of all ages a compelling vision of aging that celebrates its many gifts, acknowledges its challenges, and reveals how the last season of life can be the most fulfilling of all."--Amazon.com.
