excellent work on the science of Hitler's "Public Enemy #1"
Not a bad summary of the science- but it left out some of Einstein's political science, including his _Why Socialism_ essay. I don't think it is copyrighted. That is more a capitalist idea.
The "Stubbornly Persistent Illusion" references Einstein's views on Free Will. He didn't believe it was 'free', and it turns out most physics rockstars (like the author, Hawking) agree with him. Human behavior is 100% rule-based. The rules, it turns out, are those that govern simple organic chemistry. Which is built on quantum physics- Einstein discovered the light quanta, which we now call photons. (Also, he proved the existence of atoms / molecules in 1905, which is when he also laid out Special Relativity and the foundations for quantum physics.)
Essentially, all of fundamental physics bears Einstein's mark. He even helped develop the Wave Equation with Schrodinger, helping him along via snail-mail.
