Einstein's Quote of the Day:
"The discovery of a nuclear chain reaction need not bring about the destruction of mankind any more than the discovery of matches."

Here is the definitive new edition of the hugely popular collection of Einstein quotations that has sold tens of thousands of copies worldwide and been translated into twenty-five languages.

The Ultimate Quotable Einstein features 400 additional quotes, bringing the total to roughly 1,600 in all. This ultimate edition includes new sections--"On and to Children," "On Race and Prejudice," and "Einstein's Verses: A Small Selection"--as well as a chronology of Einstein's life and accomplishments, Freeman Dyson's authoritative foreword, and new commentary by Alice Calaprice.

In The Ultimate Quotable Einstein, readers will also find quotes by others about Einstein along with quotes attributed to him. Every quotation in this informative and entertaining collection is fully documented, and Calaprice has carefully selected new photographs and cartoons to introduce each section.

  • Contains roughly 1,600 quotations in all
  • Includes new sections on children, race and prejudice, and Einstein's poetry
  • Provides new commentary
  • Beautifully illustrated
  • The most comprehensive collection of Einstein quotes ever published

Review:

"[The Ultimate Quotable Einstein] is a compelling selection. . . . Students of Einstein's work and life, who are familiar with these contexts, can find many embellishments to their research, and often puzzling contrary notes to customary portrayals of his stance on issues ranging from Zionism to domestic life."--Choice
