Albert Einstein's life story

Updated on November 4, 2012

Typical gifts ... and sometimes boring

What to give a man as a gift for Christmas? There are many objects that become a recurring theme every Christmas or even in every celebration to give a man: ties, wallets, pens with an elegant design, keychains, etc. These have become classics. Today might be some other options for accessories like the iphone or ipad. Other objects include even items for the car, and of course can not rule men's fragrances. Anyway in the end if they are pretty or not, expensive or not, useful or just for adornment, objects mentioned have a common flaw: they are impersonal.

What can be personal?

Even more intimate

To choose a more personal gift would have to think about the tastes of the man in question, their thinking, their dress, their work, the kind of relationship we have with him: as father, son, brother, brother-in-law, friend, etc.

If the man we want to give a gift really matters to us is also very important to choose something that is not only useful but also will leave an impression on a deeper level at him, something that might be interested in, motivated in or at least let him have fond memories of Christmas.

Hard task

But to find a gift that achieves the desired effect would have to know not only the most obvious aspects of the personality of a man, as his tastes or his behavior but go a step further: their secret thoughts and motivations!

Wow, that's impossible!

His secret thoughts and motivations? Yes, do you think it is impossible? That anyone can do that? I don't think so. You don't need to be psychic to see that there is a common denominator in many men and this is the admiration for the successful characters. Whether these have been singers, actors, athletes, businessmen, political leaders or great scientists.

Albert Einstein's life

A Superstar

And what better than the life of someone who met several traits of superstar, the man who is considered one of the greatest geniuses of all time, which amended the Newtonian view of universe and also had his own political and social points of view on many subjects and was once so famous and sought by the media as a rock star. Someone, however, that despite having revolutionized science from the ground, in contrast had many human trait as common as any other person in the world. Albert Einstein's biography written by Isaacson is not a scientific work, but a glimpse into the life of an extraordinary man that certainly can mean a difference in the life of some other extraordinary man in your circle of relatives or friends.
