Everything from the size of atoms to the structure of the universe.

Just a few years earlier he had graduated from college where he had studied physics, but nobody would hire him. Einstein had worked as a substitute teacher and a tutor, but those jobs barely paid his bills. So Einstein scribbled away when nobody was looking, and when he got home he wrote even more. A loner. But this one-horse cart, with little more than the force of his gifted mind, would pull physics into the modern era and beyond.
Albert Einstein front row, third from right and his elementary school classmates. He is one of only two children smiling.
Much too fat! She did, however, think his head looked odd.
It was too large, and had a funny shape—it stuck out at the back. Was that normal? This was her first child, and it was natural that she would feel concerned. But her doctor told her Albert was perfectly fine.
Like most children at the time, Albert was born at home. The Einsteins had been married for two and a half years before Albert arrived.

Here Hermann sold featherbeds for a company he owned with his cousins. The Einsteins were considered nonobservant Jews.

I found that it wasn't so oddball to like music and poetry and visual arts, they're kindred spirits. I've been such an oddball my whole life, but I've always been cool and I've always dressed fairly smartly. The choice of roles as I grow older gets more and more limited, so if I pin myself to one kind of part I would get in trouble.

Mikael Blomkvist, for instance, doesn't have ulcers or booze problems or an anxiety complex. He doesn't listen to operas, nor does he have an oddball hobby such as making model airplanes. If you think about it, I was at college, and then three months later, I was a massive pop star.
