    Time's 'Man of the Century', Albert Einstein is the unquestioned founder of modern physics. His theory of relativity is the most important scientific idea of the modern era. In this short book Einstein explains, using the minimum of mathematical terms, the basic ideas and principles of the theory which has shaped the world we live in today. Unsurpassed by any subsequent books on relativity, this remains the most popular and useful exposition of Einstein's immense contribution to human knowledge.

Reviews of Relativity: The Special and the General Theory

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.
