The Other Einstein - Marie Benedict - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Other Einstein:

The story of Mitza Marie and her "relative" marriage to Albert Einstein.

My favorite Marie Benedict quote from the book:

"Friends did matter."

Questions to ponder while reading The Other Einstein:

Does academic failure signify a lack of intelligence?

Have you ever fallen for the wrong person?

My review of the book:

Interesting ideas into the inner workings of Einstein's first marriage.

It is sad and very wrong when a woman gives up her ambitions.

I'm glad the world now knows about Liserl.
