Albert Einstein, by An Incomptent

Albert Einstein: The Life of a Genius - Jack Steinberg

DO NOT WASTE TIME OR MONEY ON THIS "BOOK".

 

This is like a bad wikipedia article written by an non-native English speaker with no training in any form of professional writing. The phrasing is bad. The material is disorganised, unreferenced, superficial and looks as if it has been culled from a bunch of secondary sources without acknowledgement. Every paragraph is followed by an acre of white space to no purpose except, perhaps, a failed attempt to disguise how short the work is. I abandoned it on p11.

 

A note at the back says, "Printed by Amazon." This book re-enforces all the bad stereotypes about self published works. I am kicking myself for not taking the time to check the nature of this piece properly before purchase. I feel ripped off.
