Town Hall Seattle says
“No-one makes complex science more fascinating and accessible than David Bodanis,” says fellow writer Bill Bryson, At this event, Bodanis (E=mc2) will discuss his intimate and enlightening biography of the celebrated physicist who revolutionized our understanding of the cosmos with his general theory of relativity. Yet Einstein was ignored by most working scientists in the final decades of his life, his ideas opposed by even his closest friends. In "Einstein’s Greatest Mistake," Bodanis explains this surprising downfall, tracing the arc of the iconic figure’s intellectual development. Bodanis brings to light how much we owe Einstein today—and imagines how much more he might have achieved if not for his all-too-human flaws.
