Excellent explanations of Relativity,

This review is from: How to Teach Relativity to Your Dog (Kindle Edition)
Once you get used to the folksy style of Orzel's conversations with his talking dog (sic), this is really a very clear and thorough survey of both special and general theories of relativity. Actually about half the text consists of straightforward author-to-reader explanations, and you realise after a while that the intervening doggy dialogues provide welcome, often genuinely funny, relief, allowing you to digest the sheer enormity of the concepts. Furthermore, Orzel puts questions into the dog's mouth which anticipate a reader's likely demands for more clarification. I thoroughly recommend this book and look forward to reading the companion volume on Quantum Physics.
