Albert Einstein (1879–1955) was born in Germany and became an American citizen in 1940. A world-famous theoretical physicist, he was awarded the 1921 Nobel Prize for Physics and is renowned for his Theory of Relativity.

Albert Einstein (1879–1955) was born in Germany and became an American citizen in 1940. In addition to his scientific work, Einstein was an influential humanist who spoke widely about politics, ethics, and social causes. After leaving Europe, Einstein taught at Princeton University.

Through his words, you can understand the man and gain his insight on social, religious, and educational issues. While the concept of Out Of My Later Years fascinates me, the execution did not. It's not the books fault. This is a collection of letters from the last years of Einstein's life. I realized after starting this that while I know Einstein's name I don't know much about his life. My ignorance made this book confusing since Einstein wasn't writing to the uneducated masses of the future. He was writing to the people of his own time on issues they would be familiar with.

Albert Einstein, among the greatest scientists of all time, was also a man of profound thought and deeply humane feelings. Einsteins prose on life, morality, religion, science, personalities are words which echo the wisdom of many years and the experiences which have shaped them. Einstein was not just a famous scientist. As this book reveals, he was also a profound and well-written author. The essays in this collection are enlightening, easily understood, and brief but to the point.

It is a nice collection of sixty, mostly short, articles and other texts by Einstein, mainly from the 'thirties and 'forties. They are ordered by main subject matter, not chronologically. Quite enjoyable reading. What I didn't like in the Kindle edition is that each article is presented under its title only, without a date or source reference. The date of publication does appear after the titles in the table of contents, and a list of sources are presented in the last section called "Acknowledgements". Looking at this list one discovers that the dates of publication stated there apparently correspond to the antologies the editors used as sources for the articles, which is not necessarily the original publication date of each article. Nothing is said about the context of the articles, except for a few cases. This arrangement is annoying, because knowing the original publication date is crucial for the understanding of the context in which Einstein wrote, particularly in political matters. And having to hop back and forth from the articles to the Acknowledgements list in Kindle in order to find the date and context is a nuisance.

Few, if any, have not heard of Albert Einstein (1879-1955). But how much do most people know about this great personality other than he was an outstanding scientist. The collection of articles in this book reveal the true nature of this great man, in his own words, based on his writings, speeches and sayings on various occasions. The book assumes that learned readers know the basics about Einstein's life; accordingly, it concentrates on the major issues in his later years, i.e. 1930s and 40s.

One of those issues is Einstein's deep concern about future wars and peace. Much of his writings dealt with the dawn of the atomic bomb and its devastating effect on the future of human life, especially if left uncontrolled. He repeatedly called for a supra-natural authority to control the spread of this deadly weapon and how the League of Nations Nations and the United Nations should manage this immense responsibility. It is understandable why this problem weighed so heavily on his mind: firstly, as a physicist he was involved in the theory and development of this instrument of mass destruction; and secondly, the achievement of an agreement for the control of this threat was hardly within easy reach, especially after WWII when major powers did not see eye to eye on future peace strategies. When he died in 1955, to his disappointment, no solid international agreement was yet reached and the rift between the Soviet Union and the Western Allies was steadily on the rise.

In other articles in this book about 'his people', Einstein deals with a more personal and sensitive subject. He asks : why do people hate the Jews? His opinion is simple and direct: in every nation failures of the ruling classes leads to the search for a culprit. The Jewish people being small and defenceless tend to be accused of being behind major problems . He cites as an example the German loss in WW l and how the Nazi's blamed the Jews for this loss and ended up being severely persecuted. Likewise in Russia during the unrest toward the end of the 19th century when the rulers incited people against the Jews to detract from the intensity of the crisis. Away from national problems, however, how one is to explain the historical displeasure with the Jewish communities within the European societies? Again, his reply is clear but implicit: Envy! He believes that the personality of the Jew as a clever, hard working, successful, and devoted person, naturally, invites envy and resentment.

Einstein's view of the Jews of Israel was one of pride for their huge devotion and achievements. Paradoxically, however, he was against the establishment of a Jewish nation. On the contrary, he urged his people to be tolerant and to live and work in harmony with the Palestinians. This again, reflects his wisdom and genuine interest in peace, But, sadly, to this day, his wishes have not materialised.

Very interesting writings, on a variety of topics, by one of heroes. Very insightful. Not always fun or easy reading, but very thoughtful and educational. Einstein was not just E=mc2. A nice chance to "visit" with a great man.

I was impressed with the ease of reading the words coming out of such an intelligent mind. This book shows the depth of the philosophical side of Einstein, and gives the reader lots of thoughts and ideas to ponder. Even all these years later, the thoughts and ideas still pertain to current social and political events. A great read for any Einstein fan and any philosophical minded person who would like food for thought. Out of My Later Years: The Scientist, Philosopher, and Man Portrayed Through His Own Words

This was an excellent peek into the mind of Einstein the Humanist. The mathematics were far above my head, but the understanding of the relative position of man in society was not. I am humbled by the love of mankind and the positive expectation that man will accept a moral imperative and move forward through cooperation of science and religion. I was only slightly aware of this side of Einstein and now understand why he was so beloved.

I have read this book before. I am still getting used to my Kindle. So, this is one of my first Kindle books. Einstein has always been a good writer. I guess that is due to all of his work in math and Physics. If you need or want to read some Philosophy written by one of the greats of the 20th Century, than this is a good place to start.

Other than E=MC2, most people today know little of Einstein. These essays on social and political issues are amazing. You get a real sense of the mans limits and spirituality. His short essay on freedom is spot on. I cant imagine how amazing it would be ti have a conversation with Einstein, but this is the next best thing. You get his real thoughts on a myriad of incredibly important issues in the realm of humanity.
Einstein was a genius. In his own words he describes his theory of General Relativity. His use of. examples fosters an understanding of this fascinating man. His description of a a Jew lends itself to enlightenment for the Gentile.I recommend this book.
