There must be literally hundreds of books written about Einstein. Was it daunting for you to tackle someone of so much significance and interest?
Is the information in accurate? On one hand, the author is not an Einstein expert (few picture book authors are experts on the subjects they write about), and there is no subject expert credited with reviewing the book. On the other hand, the author states that she read fifty books about Einstein and cites five books that appear to be up-to-date, unbiased sources. An Einstein expert has a quote on the cover.

I feel satisfied that Berne has tried to paint an accurate portrait of Einstein. [Einstein experts, speak up now!]
