Driving Mr Albert

Author(s): Michael Paterniti


'A Trip Across America with Einstein's Brain' - two men, an amazing 4,000-mile road trip, and the most celebrated brain of the 20th century!

This extraordinary travel book tells the true story of how in 1997 writer Michael Paterniti agreed to take a road trip from New Jersey to California, reuniting the preserved brain of the great scientist Albert Einstein (1879-1955) with his granddaughter Evelyn. Paterniti's improbable travelling companion is 84-year-old Thomas Harvey, the pathologist who not only removed Einstein's brain from his head during the autopsy but purloined it from Princeton Hospital also!
