Albert Einstein's new biography listen06/12/07 Mitch E. Perry
WMNF Drive-Time News Tuesday | Listen to this entire show:
How did Albert Einsteinâ€™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.
Itâ€™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 Einsteinâ€™s personal life, and the birth of his first child, Lizurl â€“ a secret, illegitimate daughter that nobody knew he sired until 1986 (roll tape#1 o.q.â€in historyâ€)
Thatâ€™s Walter Isaacson. Heâ€™s the author of the new book, â€œEinstein: His Life and Universeâ€. Join us tomorrow for the 2nd part of this interview.
