Einstein’s Boss recounts the story of Albert Einstein and his unconventional supervisor, Abraham Flexner, who shaped a fledgling scientific group into the world-renowned Institute for Advanced Study. Drawing on historical lessons, and the author’s own leader-ship experience, the book uncovers 10 essential rules for creating high-powered teams of genius who achieve more together than they ever could alone.

Advance Praise for Einstein’s Boss:

Einstein’s Boss is a valuable and fascinating book about managing scientists and engineers so they can thrive and produce new scientific and technological breakthroughs.”— Stanley Prusiner, M.D., Nobel Prize in 1997, Director, Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases, University of California, San Francisco

“Leading your employees to accomplish your organization’s priorities is a goal for any manager. This book provides 10 easy-to-use rules to do just that.”— Pat Frost, President, Frost Bank

“Every thinking executive fortunate enough to assemble highly gifted talent will learn from this book, and realize that discovering its truths earlier would have paid big dividends for their enterprise. The simplicity of Hromas’ writing style belies the depth of the lessons to be learned.”— Jim Adams, Chairman of the Board of Oncor Electric Delivery Company; former CEO of Southwestern Bell Telephone Company

“Not unlike herding highly intelligent big cats, convincing brilliant people to work together is one of the most difficult things a leader has to do. The lessons taken from Abraham Flexner’s relationship with Albert Einstein provide the insight that will empower a leader to forge strong teams of genius.”— Peter Agre, M.D., Nobel Prize in 2003; Johns Hopkins Malaria Research Institute

“Dr. Hromas very adroitly demonstrates that while Dr. Einstein and other geniuses possess extraordinary talent, if they are not structurally led in some type of organized fashion, the depth of their genius may never reach fruition.”— Ed Kelley, former CEO, USAA Real Estate Company
