Albert Einstein was a smart man indeed. For someone with math-brain, he certainly was not on the autistic spectrum of things. It is probably safe to assume that Einstein is the best-known physicist, likely scientist or genius, of all times. His ideas enabled many of our modern inventions but he had also a great impact socially.
As a side note, if you would like to learn more about living with autism, please read the blog of Cameron.
Due to his Nobel Prize, Albert Einstein was rather popular at the time and utilized this to lecture all over the world. As a Jew, he later lived in exile in Princeton and used his voice to help many Jewish intellectuals and artists to flee from Nazi Germany.
It is very interesting to read up on his education and private life. Turns out, he really wasn’t that bad of a student, maybe just not gifted with languages. His biggest problem with school was certainly authority. Einstein was a genuine pacifist and contributed letters and papers not only to the scientific world.
