It's a nice book..Great for understanding concepts of Relativity....Should be read in peace & solitude to get maximum out of it or it will be a soccer flying above your head..a "Must read book written by the Great Einstein" for Space & time/Relativity lovers....
Very complicated but if you read it carefully then nothing like it. Theory is quite complex but if you are real modern physics lovers then worth book to buy.
After reading books by Hawking, Kaku, Greene, and others on the topic, none are more lucid as Einstein himself in describing relativity to the non-physicist. Long on my list of must-reads, I finally got this for myself. After hearing a lifetime of comments and reviews about these theories, it is a good thing to go straight to the source. The roots of relativity are suprisingly simple and may be understood through the thought experiments described within.
This is a great book for all those who really want to understand the intricacies of the theory of relativity in depth, understand its origin and appreciate the beauty of it. The language is simple and mathematical formulas are avoided, but that does not diminish the amount of information or analysis of the subject, nor does it makes this book a peace of cake. You may even have to read some of the parts twice to fully grasp them. But the understanding of relativity that the book provides is worth the effort.
This is relativity explained by Einstein himself, without using math. There might have been a plain English explanation that is slightly more crisp, however, would you not want to read it from the master himself? The special relativity section is especially clear, and detailed. The section on general relativity is rather brief, and gives you the sense that it is just a flavor, not the full story. Yet it gives you enough to be very interested. The English translation from German could be better, but it really does not make it inexplicable. Those who complain that the translation could not be understood probably would not understand the book even if it is translated better. All in all, I would recommend reading it after some other exposition on the subject.
