"Unlike our previous book, Albert Einstein: Creator and Rebel, this one is not a biography and does not explain Einstein's ideas [...] It consists, for the most part, of quotations from hitherto unpublished letters and the like that Einstein wrote without thought of publication. [...] The order of presentation of the items is not haphazard. It is akin to that of crowding recollections of a rich life, each sequence apt to take unexpected turns as memory, with a logic all its own, leaps from remembrance to linked remembrance back and forth over the years." -- from pages 1-2.
