In Relativity: The Special and the General Theory, Einstein describes the theories that made him famous, illuminating his case with numerous examples and a smattering of math (nothing more complex than high-school algebra). Einstein's book is not casual reading, but for those who appreciate his work without diving into the arcana of theoretical physics, Relativity will prove a stimulating read.

Listener Opinions

    " Einstein explains to the general public his theory of relativity in a very comprehensible and entertaining manner. Definitely worth reading! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ronald | 5/12/2011

    " This is the rare book that contains a layman's exposition of an advanced theory by the originator of that theory. It is very readable. One need only have a curious mind and high school algebra. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam | 4/9/2011

    " Einstein... you are amazing. Most of your work goes way over my head, but your still cool. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cassandra | 4/1/2011

    " Beautiful! Glad I got some background reading in before undertaking the original. It helped a lot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Benjamin | 3/28/2011

    " Obviously an excellent introduction to relativity. Admittedly difficult reading, but you can get the overall jist of what he's saying. Definitely some basic understanding of math and physics helps! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lukasz | 3/27/2011

    " Excellent book which introduces a reader into basics of Special and General Relativity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonathan | 3/19/2011

    " Concise and clear, but an older style of writing will make it more difficult for a modern reader to understand. Narrative explanations of mathematical models are rarely easy to grasp. This work contains many. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 1/18/2011

    " I found the concepts really interesting, when I could understand them. I usually could, but not always, which is why it gets 4 stars rather than 5. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher | 1/13/2011

    " My favorite chapter title - The space-time continuum of the special theory of relativity considered as a euclidean continuum

    My favorite quote from the book - This non-rigid reference-body, which might appropriately be termed a "reference-mollusc".... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mangoo | 1/11/2011

    " A parte il testo che da il titolo al libro, questo tomo contiene molti altri testi originali di precursori della teoria (Maxwell, Reimann, Poincaré, Lorentz, ed altri), il che lo rende del tutto eccezionale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 12/30/2010

    " Not as intimidating as I thought it would be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 12/19/2010

    " The guy seems pretty smart and I think some of it went over my head, I need more studying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 8/22/2010

    " Great intro to relativity for the beginner "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 8/7/2010

    " Obviously written a century ago, but still a good introductory to the influencing forces of our universe. I think I started reading this when I was 13-14. It took a little longer to understand it...with the assumption that I do now. "
