    schema:reviewBody ""In Secrets of the Old One, Jeremy Bernstein sets out to make Albert Einstein's revolutionary contributions to modern physics comprehensible to general readers. Relying on nothing more advanced than high-school mathematics, he not only explains the science but evokes the scientific scene in which the young Einstein wrote his four revolutionary papers of 1905. Working very nearly alone and with apparently complete self-confidence, in spite of the skepticism or indifference of the physics establishment, the twenty-six-year-old Einstein managed to reveal hidden workings of "The Old One"--The name he sometimes used to refer to the deity. In the course of this one amazingly fruitful year, Bernstein shows us, he had set out the principles that would eventually turn the world of nineteenth-century physics on its head, and establish the course of physics for the twentieth century and beyond."--Jacket." ;
