This fascinating biography tells the amazing story of the great scientist Albert Einstein: his unhappy childhood, his abandonment of Germany, his life in Switzerland, his difficulty in having his work on the Theory of Relativity recognised. Einstein's life is documented here not only for his contribution to science, but also for his pacifism and his participation in public life.
A collection of short readers (not full text) enriched by colour illustrations, notes on vocabulary and interspersed with a variety of comprehension activities and exercises. The accompanying audio material offers a reading of the entire story as well as some listening exercises, as detailed in the books. With different graded levels, the series offers a progressive approach to learning German, particularly in building up a wider vocabulary and understanding of sentence structures. Each reader also includes short articles on themes and items of interest relevant to the story (history, literature, tourism, nature...) which help to develop a greater understanding of German culture and civilisation.
