Chapter 10 Summary

Einstein receives the Nobel Prize for his work on photoelectric law and general contributions to theoretical physics.

Einstein continues being a local and international cult figure. Elsa hires someone to help her sort his incoming correspondence. When he is 46 years old, he suffers a heart attack and takes four months to recover. On his 50th birthday, his admirers give him a yacht, which he enjoys sailing.
