The book “Albert Einstein – Extraordinary Life Lessons That Will Change Your Life Forever” is rather short, but it is full of good information.  The book discusses a few of Einstein’s most famous quotes.  It also uses lessons from his life as an example for how to improve your own life.  One of the main topics in the book is how to turn knowledge into wisdom and then how to use that wisdom in an efficient manner.

I really enjoyed the book and would highly recommend it.

I give this book an A-

 

Peaceful Thoughts

We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves. (Dalai Lama)

Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.  (Albert Einstein)

Mankind must remember that peace is not God’s gift to his creatures; peace is our gift to each other.  (Elie Wiesel)

Avoid popularity if you would have peace.  (Abraham Lincoln)

The Elegant Universe

Yesterday, I watched “The Elegant Universe.”  It was produced by NOVA and originally shown on PBS.

The show gives a brief overview of Quantum Mechanics, Unification Theory, and String Theory.  The filmmakers did a great job of taking extremely difficult concepts and explaining them in a way that was to easy to comprehend and the graphics they used made the show fun to watch.

I have a better understanding of String Theory, but still don’t understand String Theory.  Anyway, it was still a great show and is highly recommended.

I give it an A+
