A GENIUS TAKES ON LIFE’S BIGGEST QUESTIONS
So you think you know all about Einstein, right? The poster child for a bespectacled, wire haired comic strip character, who speaks scientific lingo and discovers stuff? Then this book is for you to make a discovery. Move over, E=MC² bomb clichés, enter Albert Einstein, the world citizen. A man who cared deeply about the rest of us, and our daily life.
WISDOM BEYOND CALCULATIONS
The Cosmic View of Albert Einstein is the first inspirational book on the meaning of life, democracy and peace in Einstein’s own words. It is aptly illustrated with the most stunning pictures of the physical world surrounding our precious planet Earth, the hair-raisingly astonishing cosmos, whose laws Professor Einstein kept discovering for us.
Albert Einstein was one of the most influential scientists of all time, but he was also an inquisitive philosopher who had many inspiring thoughts about the meaning of life, the nature of free will and existence, and our place in the cosmos he studied so closely. Through these spectacularly photographed pages, you’ll take a thrilling journey across
the universe discovering Einstein’s cosmic view.
This inspiring book reveals Einstein's ethical and philosophical ideas through quotes from many different sources – essays, books, letters, and interviews, including rare materials from the Einstein archives. These writings have been organized in such a way as to give you insight into Einstein's beliefs, as well as a sense of the man. He covers such topics as The World As I See It, Religion and Science, Morality and Values, Conscience, World Peace, Art and Creativity, Imagination, Curiosity, Nature, and more. Einstein's words are beautifully illustrated with breathtaking photos of space selected to inspire wonder and awe that we are an integral part of the magnificent universe.
With a foreword by the leading Einstein scholar Alice Calaprice from Princeton University Press, with endorsements from the Dalai Lama and the late US astrophysicist James Van Allen, and perhaps most importantly of all, with its breathtakingly beautiful marriage of quotes and astronomical images, The Cosmic View of Albert Einstein has been catapulted from Fairfield, Iowa to thousands of bookshops around the world.

Explore the universe with the most influential scientist of all time to ponder the undeservedly forgotten ideas he had on behalf of our civilization: about individual freedom, how technology should be used, about art and education. Let your mind soar.
Periodically throughout human history, individuals have appeared whose insight and imagination change our understanding in a way that can only be called revolutionary. Einstein revolutionized our scientific understanding of space and time with his use of “thought experiments,” which particularly intrigue me. These impressive images of the cosmos in which we participate are indeed a fitting accompaniment to this collection of quotations from his work.

The Cosmic View of Albert Einstein is one of the most inspiring books that I have ever seen.
The photographs of the stellar constellations, the galaxies and the individual stars literally give me goose pimples. I myself cannot understand the concept of infinity, a notion that has plagued me all my life, and if still contemplated too deeply, would literally drive me out of human comprehension.
The quotes of Albert Einstein interdigitated with the absolute wonders of the universe make the tome a precious and absolutely unique commodity.
What a curious and wonderful man was he, full of compassion of human kindness and sagacity. He is in a way a modern prophet of the likes of Buddha, Jesus and Gandhi. He knew much but at the same time he recognized that he really knew and understood little about the cosmic puzzle as he stood in wonder before it.

It’s about time somebody collected Albert Einstein’s most inspirational utterances into one volume. And what better way to adorn them than to assemble the most stunning images of the cosmos.

Whether you are a deist, an atheist, or an agnostic, you will find this book stimulating, provocative, and exquisitely beautiful… would that Einstein had lived to see these mind and eye-bending views of the cosmos… reminds us how wonderful that we are the only species on this planet able to comprehend such magnificence and to stand in sheer awe of what is… give us yet more reason to keep looking up.

Albert Einstein’s deep insight into the nature of the universe profoundly changed the way we understand it. He also wrote extensively about the links between art, science and religion; this enjoyable book is a collection of Einstein’s wide-ranging musings on these universal topics and will be of enduring interest to anyone who searches for meaning in the astonishing beauty of the natural world.
We are the watchers. We are the witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what’s going to happen, what will surely happen unless we come together – we, the Peoples of all Nations – to restore peace, harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.
Albert Einstein was a great scientist. His lifelong dedication to human rights and world peace shows that he was also a great human being. Peace, human rights, and protecting the environment, especially Sacred Sites, are the greatest needs of our time. Without peace, human rights and a health environment, how can anyone find happiness?
We must honor and respect the individual, religious freedom, cultural survival and revival, humankind and the Earth. Einstein said: "Teach peace rather than war, love rather than hate…widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty… Life is sacred."
May this beautiful, important book inspire its readers to become peacemakers, as outspoken and courageous as Albert Einstein.

A human being is a part of the whole, called by us “Universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
– Albert Einstein
There are moments when one feels free from one’s own identification with human limitations and inadequacies. At such moments one imagines that one stands on some small spot of a small planet, gazing in amazement at the cold yet profoundly moving beauty of the eternal, the unfathomable. Life and death flow into one and there is neither evolution nor destiny; only being. – Albert Einstein

Albert Schweitzer: Reverence for Life.
It is exceptionally important to celebrate the lives of people who have dedicated themselves to the cause of peace. As a trained physician Dr. Albert Schweitzer gave much of his working life to the health and welfare of people in Africa. In addition to his exemplary conduct, his philosophy focusing on reverence for life and his campaign against nuclear weapons that naturally flowed from it remains sources of great inspiration today.

We are afflicted today by “just me-ism.” Millions of people think: "It can’t make any difference what I do – it’s just me.” But imagine what the world would be like if we could turn that around – millions of people all knowing that every moment of every day they do make a difference. Albert Schweitzer embodied the ideal of living one’s life as if every second matters. Turn to this beautiful book for inspiration, for hope, for renewed faith in your own ability to make a difference for people, animals and the human community. I can’t think of a better way to spend time than with this wonderful book.

We are continuously risking our future for an ephemeral, pollution and exploitation based prosperity. Disaster, in the form of an oil spill, chemical leak or even nuclear accident like Chernobyl, could strike any day with little being done in the way of prevention. Daily life of millions of people is nothing but a constant tragedy rooted in poverty, starvation and illnesses. In order to stop it we must put an end to a conspiracy of silence of those who are unwilling to change their lifestyles or risk disturbing the foundations of the economic system that pays their bills, and expose a terrible moral cowardice of those politicians who cover this conspiracy up refusing to recognize the comprehensive nature of modern challenges.
The book Albert Schweitzer: Reverence for Life therefore cannot be more timely. It is not just a tribute to one of mankind’s Giants of Human Spirit, it is also a tocsin that appeals to our conscience.
