Summary

For the first time in paperback, here is a newly expanded edition of the best-selling book that was hailed as ''setting a new standard'' for quotation books. Tens of thousands of readers have enjoyedThe Quotable EinsteinandThe Expanded Quotable Einstein, with translations into twenty-two languages. This updated edition--which appears on the 100th anniversary of Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity and the 50th anniversary of Einstein's death--offers more than 300 new quotations, or over 1,200 altogether. Nearly all are by Einstein himself and a few are about the self-professed ''lone wolf''Timemagazine named ''Man of the Century'' at the turn of the millennium.

The New Quotable Einsteinalso includes a new section, ''On Aging,'' and fresh material has been added to the appendix-from a touching account by Helen Dukas of Einstein's last days to a day-by-day summary of Johanna Fantova's telephone conversations with Einstein during the final year and a half of his life.

Also included are a poem called ''Einstein,'' by Robert Service; and three virtually unknown verses to the song ''As Time Goes By'' (made famous in the movieCasablanca) that refer to Einstein. New photographs have been selected to introduce each section of the book.

Through well-documented quotations and supplementary information,The New Quotable Einsteinprovides a bigger and better biographical account of this multifaceted man-as son, husband, father, lover, scientist, philosopher, aging widower, humanitarian, and friend. It shows us even more vividly why the real and imagined Einstein continues to fascinate people across the world into the twenty-first century.
