JANUARY READER'S CIRCLE: The other einstein
Marie Benedict's The Other Einstein offers us a window into a brilliant, fascinating woman whose light was lost in Einstein's enormous shadow. This novel resurrects Einstein's wife, a brilliant physicist in her own right, whose contribution to the special theory of relativity is hotly debated. Was she simply Einstein's sounding board, an assistant performing complex mathematical equations, or did she contribute something more?

If interested, the National Geographic Channel televised a wonderful series on Einstein, in their Genius series, with his wife playing a pivotal role in his success.
