Mr. Paterniti discussed his book Driving Mr. Albert: A Trip Across America with Einstein’s Brain, published by Dell. Based on an award-winning article for Harper’s magazine, a reporter chronicles his coast-to-coast journey with pieces of Einstein’s brain--stored in Tupperware in the trunk of his Buick Skylark--and the 84 year-old pathologist who secretly hoarded these brain segments in mason jars in his house for over forty years. Infusing his tale with doses of science history and cultural critique, Paterniti shares his deepening understanding of Einstein’s theories and the scientist’s place in the American psyche. close
