Subtle Is the Lord

The Science and the Life of Albert Einstein

Abraham Pais

  • The most authoritative guide available to the life and thought of the 20th century's most famous scientist.
  • The author is uniquely placed to cast light on Einstein's life and thought: A leading particle physicist himself, who knew Einstein personally and had access to some of his 50,000 pages of letters and science papers after his death.
  • No other biography of Einstein is as scientifically authoritative. Subtle is the Lord has, since publication, been widely acclaimed as the classic biography in this regard.
