Einstein's brainchild: relativity made relatively easy!
Through his eloquence, eye for detail, and clever use of Einsteinian cartoons and vivid illustrations, physicist and popular science writer Barry Parker enables the reader to see and appreciate for perhaps the first time, the full meaning of Einstein's Special and General Theory of Relativity, black holes, curved spacetime, and the possibility of time travel. Parker's incomparable gift for language captures Einstein's singular brilliance and stunning theories. The clarity of the writing coupled with the many illustrations will drive home the point why so many consider Einstein to be the greatest scientist who ever lived and Time magazine named Albert Einstein 'Person of the Century'.
