I like this man's writing, but it isn't terribly gripping or so interesting that I can't put the book down. In fact, it's kind of the opposite, and at this point with so much else to do and to read, I may not finish the book. Oh, well.....

Writing was decent, but somehow expected it to be more than it was. Interesting little story, but disjointed and in the end - a little pointless?

Ok this book is 180 pages of surrealism. Why would anyone save Einstein's brain. In theory it was for research.
Some great laughs and a little relativity thrown in.
