Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am hopeless at maths but even I had to purchase this little book
Lots of equations - if you are able to understand them
Still I am humbled by the knowledge of people like Einstein and all who came after him
Dont buy it to read about the principle of relativity - it is the explanation of relativity with all it maths its pretty academic
But you gotta love it
