    Quick little read, but some great information if you want to know more about someone - I'm looking forward to reading the rest in the series. Quick little read, but some great information if you want to know more about someone - I'm looking forward to reading the rest in the series.

This biography focuses on Einstein's journey in becoming the world wide famous physicist he has now has become. Although Einstein is mostly famous for his brilliance and success, this biography mentions his family crisis and the obstacles he confronted on his way. For example, Albert's son, Hans Albert, blamed his parents divorce on his father's way of handling family life and work. Furthermore, it also mentions Einstein’s' discoveries and his realization of special relativity, as well as his famous equation, e=mc squared. One could recommend this novel to middle school students and teachers who are interested in physics and in life in the early 1900s. In conclusion, Albert Einstein The Miracle Mind is an educational biography that could be recommended to students and teachers interested in physics. This biography focused on Einstein's romantic and family life, his scientific discoveries, and his education. It may be hard to imagine Einstein as a flirt during high school, however he was. One of his friends even described him as having "the kind of male beauty that, especially at the beginning of the century that caused such havoc." He then settled with Mileva Maric, who was attending his school. His family disliked her, since she was Serbian and not Jewish. However, they got married in 1903 and had three children, but one of them is thought to have died at an early age. In the 1900s, Albert and Minerva had a divorce, since Albert was more interested in scientific discoveries, than in family life. Albert confronted many obstacles on his way on becoming a famous physicist and on proving his several hypotheses. First, when he tried to prove his theory of relativity, people were fascinated by the idea, but were suspicious of it. Additionally, people disliked Einstein for being Jewish and for his international beliefs, hence renounced his theories. In addition, Albert Einstein is known for being a genius, thus it does not surprise the readers that he wrote one of the most important equations, e=mc squared, explained that light energy came from quanta, photons, and discussed the Brownian motion that helped proving the existence of molecules. To conclude, Einstein had a busy life, as he tried to balance discoveries and physics with love and family time. In conclusion, one would recommend this biography to students and teachers who are interested in physics and in life in the early 1900s. This biography uses and explains many science terms that students might have heard before, such as e=mc squared. In addition, it also briefly explains the life and discoveries of other scientists, such as Isaac Newton and his three laws on forces and acceleration. Students could use this biography to their benefit, as it has many explanations of scientific terms, and teachers could use it to teach to the students. The choice of words in the biography makes it more interesting for the reader to read. Furthermore, it also helps the reader understand how difficult it was to live and gain money in the 1900s, but that science was still involved in people's life. In conclusion, although it was very educational, I would not recommend this biography to someone who wants be entertained, since it is more educational than amusing.

    The first pages that I read are kind of good and bad. The first reason why I liked the book is that the main character is so interesting. The main character is Einstein; he is very interesting because he has so many things going in his life. For example, he does not just stay in a class studying, doing science experiments, and figuring out math problems. He had a nice life; he plays violin, rides bikes, and many other activities that are awesome because in the same time he is so smart. The secon The first pages that I read are kind of good and bad.

For example, he does not just stay in a class studying, doing science experiments, and figuring out math problems. He had a nice life; he plays violin, rides bikes, and many other activities that are awesome because in the same time he is so smart. The second reason why I liked the first pages is how the book says quotes that were said by Einstein. I really love that because then you imagine the famous person saying it, you can get the picture of how your main character is, and his personality. These are the reasons why I liked the first pages of the book. The first pages of the book I read are good and bad for several reasons. The first reason why I did not like the first pages is that the book gives so much information. It is bad because you can’t remember everything so you will get annoyed if you want information. Then you will have to go back through the book and keep looking. The second reason why I did not really like the first pages is that sometimes when you start reading there are big paragraphs. The bad thing about them is that sometimes the information is no use and it is so boring. These are the reasons why I don’t like the first pages of the book. Albert Einstein was an awesome boy for several reasons.The first reason is that he has so much patience. He has so much patience because whenever there is some problem of math that he doesn't understand or confused, he starts working on it until he finds the answer to it then continues with his life. The math problems sometime can even take him a day, a week, and even more. The second reason is that he does not annoy his mom like most of the kids do. He does not annoy her because he is so calm. He plays calm games such as puzzles, drawings, math problems, and all different calm games that come up to his mind. These are the reasons why Albert Einstein was an awesome boy. Albert Einstein was a very humble and good person for several reasons. The first reason why he was humble is that when he accomplishes something very big and when he becomes famous he does not show off. He does not show off because he said that "I am not intelligent then anyone else, its just that i work harder and longer on something. It also shows from his childhood that he is a nice and kind person that one day, he will not grow up mean or a show off. The second reason is that he was a person that was very respectful and a good kid. He was a good kid because whenever his mom tells him to do something he does it directly without answering back or saying no. When his mom saw that, she started to trust him and they traveled to different places because of business. They went and came back very good and happy because he very mature and responsible. These are the reasons why Albert Einstein was a humble and good boy.

Known for establishing the modern theory of relativity , Albert Einstein was , intelligent, motivated, influential physicist. He was born in a jewish family the 14th of March in Württemberg, Germany. The young teenager always wanted to go beyond his knowledge and was curious about his tutor’s saying about the nature of light. After being influenced by Max Talmud, his tutor, he went to Swiss Federal Polytechnic School were he was immediately accepted due to his rich knowledge. “You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.”(Yeatts,107) The known genius is still acknowledge for his hard work and achievements now a days. “The Miracle Mind”, describes different kind of stories in a simple novel. It discusses the ups and downs of the famous Albert and his true personality. The novel expanded my knowledge, and changed most of my negative thoughts to positive ones. Albert was always the quite kid in town till comes his influence from his tutor. After being inspired, Einstein was unstoppable and no more a loser. Coming back to the title, “The Miracle Mind” describes most of the story and it’s major points. The author, Tabatha, wanted the title to make it obvious to the reader what story was talking about. The novel was mostly telling the reader about the mind that one day started to work. The best literary device of the story are the characters. The characters are really well described, that the reader imagines clearly the character’s personality, look, way of talking. While reading this book, it brings the reader back in time and creates mysterious scenes. To conclude, this story catches the reader’s mind by different aspects. The most interesting part of this novel is when the story’s character, Albert Einstein, gets mysterious which makes the reader want to read the ending as soon as possible. When Albert Einstein went back to school it inspired at the same time motivated me, this scene truly marked me. The wealthy description made the reader be convinced that “it’s always possible to get back”. In my perspective the only part of the book that should be removed are the long summaries below the picture, they take too much space and makes the reader have hard time reading the small printing. As well as, the novel would be more interesting if the author talked about him not his family as whole. This book is unique compared to others because it truly digs deep to his personal life. I highly recommend this book to all Einstein’s fans and to all science, math lovers. Last but not least, “The Miracle Mind” should be read by all middle school students because it will inspire and enrich their knowledge.

    I borrowed this from my best friend and never returned it. I have a bad habit of doing that with books. It's not so much that I didn't want to give this one back, but that I was afraid that if I gave it back, the story would leave me. It goes without saying that libraries aren't a reasonable option for me. I get buried in late fees. *sighs* Anyway, I read this and loved it. I really enjoyed learning about the intense genuis that changed the worlds with his theories and discoveries. I found it f I borrowed this from my best friend and never returned it.

I really enjoyed learning about the intense genuis that changed the worlds with his theories and discoveries. I found it fairly ironic that Einstein didn't do that great in school. Guess teachers can be wrong about students too. *winks* Einstein's personal life was just as interesting as his professional one. He was a flawed person, yes, but one who worked for the better in his life. I'd recommend this for middle-school students and their teachers because it's short and full of pictures and colors to keep the students interested, and enough actual historical substance to satisfy a teacher. If you're looking for something a little more gritty and depth, keep searching, and if you find something, please recommend it to me.

    Recommended for 7th grade and up. The introduction tells the reader why Einstein is important right off the bat, and the writing draws you in. Not recommended for elementary for two reasons: 1) There is a lot of text; and 2) The author does not shy away from truths about the circumstances of Einstein's first marriage. Unfortunately, a reader could get the impression that Albert was not always such a nice guy. I was surprised by this.

Things I especially liked about this book: Coverage of his political conscience and his work for peace, social justice, and against nuclear war. This book also provides excellent context in the form of sidebars, photos, and boxes that describe the places, scientists, and scientific concepts that were part of Einstein's work and life. Interesting tidbit: The "big bang" theory of the origin of the universe was first introduced by a Catholic priest.

    I rarely stray from my usual mysteries and adventures...okay and the occasional kid's book (what can I say I love Seuss!). However, in an attempt to join a raffle at a library, I have to fill in a "bingo" sheet. One of the items was "read a biography/autobiography/memoir". I dreaded it! However, by choosing an easier, skinnier book from the kids section, and a scientist with some of the most unique hair and thinking ever, I actually got into it. Couldn't put it down. Ok, it's a 121 page book. Bu I rarely stray from my usual mysteries and adventures...okay and the occasional kid's book (what can I say I love Seuss!).

    An extremely quick reading book that offers a few insights into the legend of physics. While this book has a lot of personal facts and details about Einstein's life, it contains nothing that can't be learned from the average discovery channel special. Though Einstein's personal life is full of interesting choices that seem to contradict his supposed caring and peaceful nature, his theories and discoveries are easily more thought provoking.

    This book for Young Readers was perfect for me because I can barely understand Einstein's theories of space, time, gravitation, relativity, etc., and needed a simplified explanation. Einstein was not only an amazing rarity, but was a genius, who also played the violin, and spoke out against racism of Jews and American Blacks, neither of which I knew. I, however, didn't care for his promiscuous behavior.

    This book made me love Einstein's awesome and unlimited mind and his fair social act , but I disliked that he had a hand in the idea of creation of nuclear bomb by the U.S. But through all I loved his science filled life. I understand most of his theories . He is truly the man of the century . I hope more fact and applications of his relativity theory will be found in the future :) .

    Interesting, concise bio of Einstein. He was definitely a brilliant scientist, but I never realized what a flake he was in his personal life. This was the perfect length of bio for me. Not too long and dry- but just enough to give me the major points of his life.
