ABOUT THE BOOK
Mileva Maric has always been a little different from other girls. Most twenty-year-olds are already wives, not studying physics at an elite Zurich university with only male students trying to outdo her clever calculations. But Mileva has been smart enough to know that, for her, math is an easier path than marriage.
And then fellow student Albert Einstein takes an interest in her, and the world turns sideways. Theirs becomes a partnership of the mind and of the heart, but there might not be room for more than one genius in a marriage.
THE OTHER EINSTEIN is the story of Einstein’s wife, a brilliant physicist in her own right, whose contribution to the special theory of relativity is hotly debated and may have been inspired by her own profound and very personal insight. It offers us a window into a brilliant, fascinating woman whose light was lost in Einstein’s enormous shadow.

"The Other Einstein takes you into Mileva's heart, mind, and study as she tries to forge a place for herself in a scientific world dominated by men."-Bustle
