By L. Edward Sizemore
For the Denton Record-Chronicle

The Ultimate Quotable Einstein is neither novel nor reference work. It is the sort of delightful book that one dips into here and there, from time to time, for the simple pleasure of doing so.

Calaprice arranges the material in 23 topical chapters, each dealing with a particular subject, such as death, education, Jews and Judaism, music, and Science and Scientists, to name but a few.

Of special interest are the final chapters. There is a longish chapter on miscellaneous topics, followed by a chapter of Einstein's poetry, as well as quotes attributed to Einstein -- some rather questionable. The concluding chapter has quotes about Einstein by others.

The beauty of this book is that it allows us to see Einstein the man, as well as Einstein the... Read more
This collection of Einstein's own words is very comprehensive in its choice of subjects. I particularly like the chapter on philosophy. It is also reliable, as the editor is an expert on Einstein and in my opinion she has made a serious effort at ensuring accuracy. References to every quote are clearly cited.

The book is handy, and reliable, in case you might want to check if Einstein really said it.

An extra bonus in Freeman Dyson's lovely sendoff.
In it Dyson offers an intriguing and unique insight to Einstein's letters, and Helen (one of Einstein's executors) who maintained the large Einstein archive. Einstein at his death donated it to the Hebrew University in Israel, and Dyson recalls a cold and snowy night when the archives were crated and shipped from the Institute in Princeton to Jerusalem.
It was a few weeks before Helen died, like it was a premonition.

Dyson wrote about it beautifully in the foreword to this book with Einstein quotations.
You can see most of it in the Look Inside feature on the amazon product page.
The Foreword is also where Dyson wrote about how Helen was babysitting the Dyson... Read more
