Modesty, humor, compassion, and wisdom are the traits most
evident in this illuminating selection of personal papers from the
Albert Einstein Archives. The illustrious physicist wrote as
thoughtfully to an Ohio fifth-grader, distressed by her discovery
that scientists classify humans as animals, as to a Colorado banker
who asked whether Einstein believed in a personal God. Witty
rhymes, an exchange with Queen Elizabeth of Belgium about fine
music, and expressions of his devotion to Zionism are but some of
the highlights found in this warm and enriching book.
