The 3-Minute series offers the essence of history's most important figures with all the padding removed. It divides up their lives into 60 three-minute chunks, each presented as an easily digestible visual snack. Divided into three thematic sections on Life, Theories, and Influence-each containing an hour's worth of fascinating facts-the 3-Minute series is a whole new style of biography. Spend 15 minutes a day in the company of a colossus from the world of science, politics or culture, and you will soon have a whole biographical dictionary in your head.
And what better subject to kick off a series of timed biographies than Einstein, the scientist whose space-time theories laid the foundations for modern physics. Time magazine's Person of the Twentieth Century, Einstein was not only an unparalleled scientific genius, but a human rights campaigner, a political activist, and the iconic archetype of the mad professor. Is it any wonder that Einstein continues to fascinate scientists and non-scientists alike?
3-Minute Einstein will show you why at approximately the speed of light.
