Ideas and Opinions: 09/13/13
Ideas and Opinions by Albert Einstein is a collection of his letters and published opinions on a variety of topics over the course of his life. The book is divided up by topic and the articles therein are published in chronological order — some with explanations but most without.
These articles read like blog posts — and in a way they were — but for the printed word. As they were for newspapers (primarily), there's a formality to them that even the most carefully crafted blog post seems to lack.
For casual reading, Ideas and Opinions was a little dry for me. But as a reference it's still fascinating. Were the copy not a library book, I would have spent more time reading and musing over the topics that interested me most — especially his science lectures for the general public.

This book is just a collection of articles written by einstien in newspapers,letters,etc...... Articles related to science are less,most of them are about his political views..

Yes; that's right. But I still think if a newer edition were published it would be more interesting with annotations.
