If like me you are a fan of Einstein and think the world of him and his discovery, this book is likely to make you think again. The book is billed as a novel and tells the story of Albert Einstein from his wife Mileva's perspective. By the time i was done reading the book I was prepared to hate Einstein for stealing Mileva's ideas, not giving her credit,and abusing her to boot. Doubts lingered since it was after all a novel but the Author's Note at the end states that there is a good basis for the story. If even a part of it is true, Mileva Maric has been a pioneer of Science education for girls and women.It is because of women like her and Marie Curie that today women do not have to choose between family and career.
