    1. This is the copy that I wanted In his own words, he describes conceptually the theory of special and general relativity He uses very clever and easy to understand theoretical and real situations to guide your understanding towards an omega point I bought this book at special price from here Relativity Spe

    2. Some years ago in France a book by Jean Fran ois Gautier appeared, entitled Does the universe exist Good question.What if the universe were a concept like cosmic ether, or phlogiston, or the conspiracy of the Elders of Zion Philosophically, Gautier s arguments make sense.The idea of the universe, as the totality of the cosmos, is one that comes from the most ancient cosmographies, cosmologies, and cosmogonies But can one describe, as if seeing it from above, something within which we are contain [...]

    6. edit i wrote the 4 star review below before reading the fifth appendix i mean, who could imagine that an appendix could change anything well, this one did all the chapters in the body of the book are 2 or 3 pages Appendix V is a 20 page essay, written 36 years after the rest of the book and just 3 years before einstein died it is a tour de force on the history, philosophy, and psychology i kid you not of the scientific understanding of empty space it was shocking, thrilling, amazing the book now [...]

    7. This book by Dr Einstein is very well written, though you will find the anatomy of sentences a little unusual Well this should not be a problem considering the theory s difficulty level Though the theory is very simple mathematically special theory of relativity I m talking about , but the case is reverse when it comes to understand it intuitively It defies the common sense And that s what the book is about It changes your outlook, the way you see the nature and gives you a new and better unders [...]

    8. The aim of this book is to introduce people without a strong physics or even scientific background to the special and general theories of relativity theories that Einstein was the primary developer of Einstein assumes the reader has passes a university matriculation exam What that meant in the first half of the 20th Century, I don t know but in practice what s required is the level of algebra I had by age 16 plus a smattering of mentions of the square root of minus 1 I also found basic calculus [...]

    9. As a kid my serious interests were scientific I collected feathers, insects, rocks and fossils maintained an aerospace scrapbook kept a journal about space exploration and read a lot of science books ranging from popular stuff and textbooks to serious works from the library which I hardly understood My greatest intellectual interests by junior high were in cosmology and astronomy.During middle school, or possibly during the freshman year in high school, I started going to the library to read Ein [...]

The Times from Nov 10, 1919, left Nov 16, 1919, center and Dec 3, 1919 He was living alone A friend, Janos Plesch, once said, He sleeps until he is awakened he stays awake until he is told to go to bed he will go hungry until he is given something to eat and then he eats until he is stopped In A Century Ago, Einstein s Theory of Relativity Changed EverythingBy DENNIS OVERBYENOV 24, 2015nytimes 2015 11 24 sciAwesome, see here economist relativity

    11. The theory of relativity is amazing and important, but contrary to what the tagline says, Einstein himself is probably not the best person to have explain it to you I read this class for Freshman Studies in college, and I honestly have to admit that I wouldn t have gotten much of it without the significant aid of in depth lectures and classroom discussions This is not because the ideas themselves are too complex, but because Einstein fails in his attempt to make his ideas understood to a layman [...]

    12. Read on my Kindle, free from Project Gutenberg.The biggest problem I had with this was actually one of presentation The team which had prepared it for release had presented all the equations as jpegs, a reasonable idea when reading it in HTML, but not a good one when reading it on a Kindle Still, who am I kidding the equations probably wouldn t have made sense to me anyway.I am an arts graduate trying to understand relativity I ve read Hawking, and I ve read Cox, and I thought I should really lo [...]

    13. This year is the centennial of the publication of Einstein s general theory of relativity I got my hands on the Pi Press edition, which was published 10 years ago coinciding with the centennial of the special theory of relativity Yesterday, the New Horizons spacecraft flew past Pluto, sending huge volumes of information back to Earth and the day before, CERN announced that the LHC has found proof of the existence of the pentaquark Science continues to reach new frontiers, though nothing that can [...]

    14. How dare I give this masterpiece less than 5 stars Although I could hardly claim that I understood 10 percent of the book What he was talking about Moving reference bodies, Euclidean geometry, Newtonian theory of gravitation, What We don t see the real length of things as everything is moving in the space Length is relative as well as mass So what is real Is there one single thing that all human can agree on it Relativity can be applied on other aspects of life other than Physics What is right a [...]

    15. When I was at university the lecturers recommended books on relativity and I even read a few I gleaned a vague understanding of the subject None of them recommended Einstein s book I can t remember where I found it but I m very glad I did It s the best and easiest to understand book about relativity I have ever read I recommend it to students who are struggling with the concepts and all of them so far have had the Aha moment thanks to Albert himself.It s just been returned to me from another stu [...]

    16. The best for dummies book ever Written by the master himself, explaining it all with great depth and as simply as possible.I feel that the General Theory was not covered in any real sense, probably because it would have been too difficult for us While still appreciating Einstein s visual demonstrations and thought experiments, I wouldn t have minded a few equations and formulas either, to combine the powers of intuition and precision.

    17. Given Einstein s universally acknowledged genius and the reputation for intractability still enjoyed by general relativity a century after its birth, this work is a paragon of clarity and simplicity of explication It is very light on mathematics, only requiring basic algebra, and works almost entirely through illustrative models such as that of an observer on a moving train Einstein was one of those who had been forced to rethink our universe based on the contradictions raised by the apparent an [...]

    18. Albert Einstein was a really smart motherfucker He was smart not just because he was able to conceive of the theory of relativity both the special and general theories he was working on things that people before him had already worked on What was really smart about him is that he was able to make it all explicable if not entirely comprehensible to your average person I m not going to go into the general and special theories of relativity, because I honestly only understand the theories in metaph [...]

    19. While a number of other books cover the topics of special and general relativity, only this one, written by the creator of the theories themselves, conveys a sense of profound understanding that is unparalleled by other books on the subject What is most remarkably about this book is that it provides an excellent framework for the special and general theories without necessitating the understanding of advanced math As someone who loves math, this is not something I would normally laud, but, in th [...]

    20. I call it epic book, not only in terms of the knowledge it gives But it is sure to create a storm of queries and enthusiasm in your mind provided you enjoy mathematics form the core of the heart.It surely imparts some best lessons for life, that keep your subconscious alert and curiosity should be the prime element of every thought process The thing that Einstein got the idea of relativity while going home in a car, he saw the time in clock mounted on top of church, and it gave him the storm tha [...]

    21. Years ago,in my college physics class,I had to actually learn and try to explain Einstein s theory of relativity With the complex math and all the workbooks, it was a task I really hated I thought I understood it and was able to get through the tests But I never really paid close attention to what it really meant At that time, all I wanted was to be able to answer queations about it to get grades Then, I changed my major and went into other subjects that I really cared about After so many years, [...]

    22. While I cannot say that I understood this book in its entirety, I can say that it was extremely well written and informative My failure to grasp the complexity of Einstein s Special and General Theory of Relativity is a result of my inexperience in the field of Physics I am slowly expanding my knowledge, and while I started off with a basic understanding of Special and General Relativity, this book has been a gem in the pool of information I won t try and give a summary of the book itself, anyon [...]

    23. This book helped me reach a new milestone I am no longer afraid to read books with equations in them At least with this book, I came to realize that the equations were only symbolic translations of what was being said in the text, and once I realized that, they actually made some sense to my arithmephobic mind As for how readable and accessible this book is, I d say, for the typical layperson, it s moderately difficult I really think Einstein handled it pretty well, though He gives it to you in [...]

    24. Despite Einstein s best intention to make his theory comprehensible to the non specialized public, this book is still difficult The commentary at the end of the book by Robert Geroch is helpful In the Special Theory of Relativity, Einstein states that space and time are not fixed properties, that they are intimately connected to each other hence, spacetime, ST , that time and space are shorter and slower as an object moves closer to the speed of light, and that mass increases with the addition o [...]

    25. Relativity is Einstein s attempt to explain Special and General Relativity to a general audience He states at the beginning of the book that he s trying to keep it concise and at a level where most people should be able to understand the small amounts of mathematics he uses He mentions that it would be elegant, feeling he ought to leave that to artists but that, with a little effort on behalf of the reader, it should provide an adequate understanding.It s hard for me to tell whether Einstein was [...]
