Einstein and the Time Machine (Flashes of Genius)
Albert Einstein wasn't afraid to think for himself. Working as a clerk in the patent office in Bern, Switzerland, he wrote papers with fantastical theories--that light is both a wave and a particle; that matter can become energy, and energy can become matter; that space can "bend," and time is relative. His revolutionary theories turned the world of physics upside down, and earned him a Nobel Prize. Einstein and the Time Machine tells the story of one of the greatest thinkers of the 20th century, as well as the basics of his Theory of Relativity.
