5.0 out of 5 stars A uniqe conversation with one of the greatest minds of mankind., 17 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Relativity: The Special and the General Theory (Paperback)
This book is an excellent example of the fact that nobody can explain a theory better than it own creator. The main characteristic of Einstein's text is the clarity succeeded through brevity which renders this essay a terrific non technical introduction both for Special and General theories of Relativity. Some chapters dealing with the notions of space and time have a more philosophical approach but the rest of the book is pure physics. The usage of mathematical formulas is negligible and confined only to the Appendixes something that make it accessible to the layman. Even though the writer claims that this text is intended for the layman, it is a terrific source of knowledge and a fresh breeze of ideas even for physicist themselves who I believe must surely read it. Einstein's vivid style of writing comes from the fact that through his text it is as if he is directly talking to the reader. I dare to say that this small book which I've read multitude of times and each time with greater joy, contains the most crystal clear exposition of the ideas and needs that gave berth to the two theories which are unanimously considered to be as the jewels of human thought. If you don't have a deep knowledge of physics and you want to get an idea of what Relativity means then before you buy anything else, I recommend this book by heard.
