A fun way to introduce relativity!,
This review is from: How to Teach Relativity to Your Dog (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well, you expect the dog bit to get annoying after a while, but hey, it's what it says on the cover! Otherwise it is a great, easy to understand introduction to the concepts of relativity. The dog of the conversations can be substituted with any figure you wish: student, child, adult, whatever. The important thing is the author has approached the subject from the point of the layman who doesn't have an extensive physics background (unlike some other recently lauded works, which claim to be an everyday introduction to subjects such as quantum mechanics and so on but are way beyond this layman's understanding). If you need to understand what is meant by relativity and its importance and relevance to us, then you should start here.
