Albert Einstein's new biography

WMNF Drive-Time News Tuesday | Listen to this entire show:

How did Albert Einstein’s mind work? What made him a genius? Those questions are answered in the new biography of the theoretical physicist best known for his theory of relativity.

It’s written by former Time Magazine Editor Walter Isaacson, who has previously written biographies on Benjamin Franklin and Henry Kissinger.

In the first part of our 2 part interview, WMNF spoke with Isaacson today. We began by asking about Einstein’s personal life, and the birth of his first child, Lizurl – a secret, illegitimate daughter that nobody knew he sired until 1986 (roll tape#1 o.q.”in history”)

That’s Walter Isaacson. He’s the author of the new book, “Einstein: His Life and Universe”. Join us tomorrow for the 2nd part of this interview.
