Picks and Pans Review: A Trip Across America with Einstein's Brain
by Michael Paterniti
Albert Einstein got good grades (contrary to the myth that he flunked physics), became a U.S. citizen at age 61, suffered from severe diarrhea and vomiting in his later years and died at 76 of an abdominal aneurysm in 1955. Dr. Thomas Harvey, then 42, performed an autopsy and removed (many would say stole) Herr Doktor's brain. But, as an octogenarian, a semi-contrite Harvey decided to turn over the renowned noodle to Einstein's granddaughter Evelyn. With the author on board as chauffeur, this true-life tale describes Harvey's grand ride and his mission to find physical proof of Einstein's genius. (Dial, $18.95)
