Told with humor, enthusiasm, and rare clarity, this entertaining book reveals how Albert Einstein, a former high school drop-out revolutionized our understanding of space and time. From E=mc2 and everyday time travel to black holes and the big bang, Einstein Relatively Simple takes us all, regardless of our scientific backgrounds, on a mind-boggling journey through the depths of Einstein’s universe. Along the way, we track Einstein through the perils and triumphs of his life—follow his thinking, his logic, and his insights—and chronicle the audacity, imagination, and sheer genius of the man recognized as the greatest scientist of the modern era.
The book brings together for the first time an exceptionally clear explanation of both special and general relativity. It is for people who always wanted to understand Einstein’s ideas but never thought they could.
