In Einstein, Jürgen Neffe rushes through the triumphs (relativity, E=mc²) to dwell on the rocky marriages, failures (couldn’t crack the ”theory of everything”), and racy accusations (plagiarist! Soviet spy!). Germany ”hated and loved him, and he love-hated her back.”
He couldn’t swim, didn’t drink, and reportedly mussed his ‘do for journalists.
Neffe tries to expose Einstein’s mind, but reveals too much of his own German psyche.
