Einstein: His Life and Universe

Walter Isaacson

Overview

If you've read the biography of Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson, you'll sure get a kick out of this one as well. He also wrote this biography of Albert Einstein, basing his research on previously uncovered material and taking a look not just at the facts of Albert Einstein's life, but also his character and personality. Reading biographies is one of the best ways to spend your time, because you can consume an entire person's life in just a few hours.

"People only learn from mistakes, but nobody says they have to be your own." [Warren Buffett]

If you look at lives like Einstein's and try to see what they did right and wrong, that's a whole lot of time you can shave off your own learning curve. Plus, you might not even know what Einstein is actually famous for, other than quotes like "imagination is more important than knowledge." In that case, today's the day that changes.
