Andrew Robinson has written more than twenty-five books, including Einstein: A Hundred Years of Relativity, The Last Man Who Knew Everything, and Genius: A Very Short Introduction. He also contributes regularly to newspapers and magazines.
Robinson's evocative account of a transitional phase in Einstein's life offers a valuable new perspective on this great scientist's personality. -Martin Rees, Astronomer Royal and former president of the Royal Society A well-researched and very readable book about a less well-known period in Einstein's life - his contact with England and English scientists. -Jocelyn Bell Burnell, Visiting Professor of Astrophysics, University of Oxford I absolutely adore this book - it's insightful and very well-written. Einstein's time in and relation to Britain from an Anglophile perspective is a new and valuable contribution. Robinson is also a very fine storyteller. -Steven Gimbel, author of Einstein: His Space and Times The very first study of its kind. It wears its thorough and conscientious scholarship lightly on its sleeve -a splendidly entertaining read. -Ze'ev Rosenkranz, editor of The Travel Diaries of Albert Einstein A compelling tale of Einstein's reception in Britain. Robinson casts in bold relief important insights into the nature and character of British and German societies in the interwar period. -Robert Schulmann, Former head of the Einstein Papers Project
