The World Needs More Rebels Like Einstein

How nonconformity, not rote learning, unlocked his genius. by Walter Isaacson

Albert Einstein, as every kid knows, was a smart guy. But as we discover when we get older, smart gets you only so far. It's worth remembering, especially now, that what made Einstein special was his impertinence, his nonconformity, and his distaste for dogma.

I really enjoyed this article and thought others might enjoy it, as well.
