Description
 
One of Galileoís fingers is in a museum in Florence, Italy. Napoleonís severed penis is in the hands, as it were, of an American urologist. And the brain of the greatest thinker of the 20th century lay until recently in two muddy cookie jars under a box behind a beer cooler in Wichita, Kansas. On Einsteinís death in 1955, Princeton pathologist Thomas Harvey seized the chance to salvage the great thinkerís brain. Possessed by the idea that it might hold the key to the enigma of Einsteinís genius, Harvey became the unlikely custodian of the organ responsible for the Theory of Relativity . Here is the bizarre story of Einsteinís brain as it roamed the world in mayonnaise jars & courier packages, taking over one manís life for half a century. Illustrations.
