## The cults of relativity: finding Einstein, Twain and a universe beyond EHave you ever wanted someone to explain the Theory of Relativity to you in a way that's honest and easy to understand? The Cults of Relativity does just that, playfully explaining parallel universes, the warping of time and how Einstein derived E=mc2. Then it blasts off into the deep unknown. From there, you'll look back to see a world where some cults gather to worship statistics, while others worship a remarkable prophecy called Cem. And your guides for this journey? Albert Einstein, Mark Twain and an impressive list of physicists, physicians, philosophers...and liars. The Cults of Relativity presents a new view of our universe and is a must-read for those wishing to explore the outer edges of science. |
