Einstein out there

by Icemm on Aug 16, 2007

I had hoped reading this book would give me some insight into the theorie(s) of relativity and the portions that had eluded me in getting a picture of so far. I instead found a view into the seeming jumbled and complex mind of the father of relativity. This book was suposedly aimed at the common man (or woman) without a background in mathmatics. That may be accomplished to some degree, but the references to laws and theories make this book a very hard reading without some background in physics. Worth the effort just for the nostalga of witnesing the mind of a great genius no longer with us.
