Posted on

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.”

Fun Fact
He couldn’t swim, didn’t drink, and reportedly mussed his ‘do for journalists.

Lowdown
Neffe tries to expose Einstein’s mind, but reveals too much of his own German psyche.
