100 Day Project – Day 35 – 9:20 p.m.

Yes, that is right.  Today I’m thinking about Einstein.  I’m reading his biography.  I really enjoy biographies.  It’s a really great way to learn so much about a lot of things; not just the person the book is written about.  Of course, this assumes, a well-written biography.  My hubbie has been reading one about Sir Richard Frances Burton written by his niece — he has been reading it for about ten years!  Apparently it’s very poorly written.  I have less patience for the poorly written biography.

This is a brilliant book about a brilliant man.  The challenge is that the math and science that is absolutely necessary to cover in the book has me totally baffled!  I’m reminded how poor my math and science education was:  when I was a young girl the only science I needed to know was the biology of babies; and we won’t even consider the math I was(n’t) taught.    It’s not often I find a book that has me in my dictionary this often.  And,  I’m not sure how I’m going to figure out how to understand the science involved.  I keep reading and try to understand the jist of the subject matter.  Einstein was an interesting person – well worth the challenge.


It’s a great read.  Add it to your list.  Be baffled.  Be amazed.
