"This book is designed to serve as a guide to those who would explore the theories by which the scientist seeks to comprehend the mysterious world of the atom. Nuclear fission and atomic bombs are not the whole of atomic science. Behind them lie extraordinary ideas and stirring events without which our understanding would be meager indeed." --Preface
The tyranny of testing by Banesh Hoffmann( Book )
35 editions published between 1962 and 2003 in English and German and held by 1,093 libraries worldwide
Hoffmann's complete and well-documented account of the failings and dangers of mechanical testing illustrates the inherent flaws in aptitude and achievement tests. It demonstrates the inadequacies of multiple-choice testing, in which candidates simply choose answers and need not justify their replies, revealing the tests' inclination to reward superficiality rather than subtlety and creativity. Aimed at teachers and others involved in education, this polemic exposes the corporate testing giants whose dubious claims to scientific accuracy shield them from public scrutiny

Banesh Hoffmann, a noted scientist himself, was a friend and collaborator with Albert Einstein. On these pages, we come to know Albert Einstein as the "backward" child; the academic outcast; the reluctant world celebrity; the exile; the pacifist; the philosopher; the humanitarian; the tragically saddened "father" of the atomic bomb; and above all, the unceasing searcher after scientific truth. At the same time, we are given a superb and essential introduction to the creative process and the concepts that shattered an age-old view of the universe and ushered in a revolution whose reverberations continue to touch us all

Albert Einstein, the human side glimpses from his archives by Albert Einstein( file )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 55 libraries worldwide
Modesty, humor, compassion, and wisdom are the traits most evident in this illuminating selection of personal papers from the Albert Einstein Archives. The illustrious physicist wrote as thoughtfully to an Ohio fifth-grader, distressed by her discovery that scientists classify humans as animals, as to a Colorado banker who asked whether Einstein believed in a personal God. Witty rhymes, an exchange with Queen Elizabeth of Belgium about fine music, and expressions of his devotion to Zionism are but some of the highlights found in this warm and enriching book
