Summary
"Albert Einstein remains the quintessential icon of modern genius. Like Newton and many others, his seminal work in physics includes the Theory of General Relativity and perhaps the most famous equation of all time: E = mc2. Following his death in 1955, Einstein's brain was removed and preserved, but has never been fully or systematically studied. In fact, the sections are not even all in one place, and some are mysteriously unaccounted for! In this compelling tale, Frederick E. Lepore delves into the strange, elusive afterlife of Einstein's brain and what it represents for brain and/or intelligence studies. This 'biography of a brain' explores how Einstein's brain anatomy was truly exceptional, and how 'found' photographs of his brain--discovered more than a half a century after his death--begin to explain the brain of a genius."--
