This is an auction for E = EINSTEIN: HIS LIFE, HIS THOUGHT, AND HIS INFLUENCE ON OUR CULTURE, edited by Donald Goldsmith & Marcia Bartusiak.

"Astrophysicist Goldsmith and science writer and professor Bartusiak have constructed a spectrum of essays that deliver lively interpretations of Einstein's life, achievements, failings, and legacy. This zestful compendium is illustrated with photographs, diagrams and cartoons. Copernicus expert Owen Gingerich writes of Einstein's "well-tuned intuition and his remarkable sense of the aesthetic" and marvels that his "workshop was in the mind," with most of his experiments "thought experiments." Stephen Hawking offers insights into "why Einstein was so unhappy about quantum mechanics." Andrea Gabor writes of Einstein's unsatisfying marriage to Mileva Maric. Physicist Brian Greene focuses on "that famous equation," and others chart the implications of Einstein's breakthroughs and hang-ups. Einstein in popular culture inspires lively discussion, and many contributors muse over how much we can still learn from his theories."
- Booklist (US) review:

"In the history of physics, there has been no greater visionary than Albert Einstein. Through his revolutionary Theory of Relativity, he fundamentally changed the way we look at the universe. But there is more to Einstein than just E=mc2 and this anthology of fascinating essays captures his facets. Complete with more than 125 colour illustrations and explanatory sidebars that make the information accessible to the layperson, these revelatory articles explore his life, theories, and legacy."
