The Lesser Known Stories Of Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein, aka Mr. E = mc2, The Father of Relativity, might come with a host of honorifics but the man’s disposition and character more closely resembled the average person. The man’s humble nature gave birth to a host of mythical tales that range from true to exaggerated, some downright false. Even today, young struggling students are often consoled with the fairy tale that “even Einstein failed in school.” Despite the folklore surrounding him, you find yourself surprised with how much you have in common with the foremost genius of the 20th century.
