Einstein: Knowledge Comes From Experience


Knowledge Comes From Experience


Two men played chess for years. Both were quite evenly matched, and enjoyed keen competition in each other. One summer, however, one of them began to win all games. The other man was bewildered; and began to look for reasons why he was failing in each game, when earlier both used to win equally. He then understood the cause: he had been reading a four volume book on How to Master Chess. Then, he did the smart thing. He gifted it to the winning man. Not long after, he began to win again.

One can watch Einstein's documentary on "History Channel", to know more about him and to see how he changed the world by his revolutionary ideas. Many thanks to History Channel for this highly creative work.
