Einstein's Theories of Relativity and Gravitation
Einstein's theory of relativity confounded and excited both professional and amateur scientists with its explanation of the intricacies of how the world and the universe truly work, rather than how people wished or believed they worked. His view of relativity dismantled Newton's theory of space and time as absolutes, adding the concept of curved space-time, which deals with the velocity of motion. Einstein explains his theory of physics in a way that was designed not only for scientists with a knowledge of the complicated math involved but for the general reader as well.

Brings a foreign subject matter to most people and tries to make ti understadable and readable. I was able to follow the general theory and i think this book is for the non-physics general public. But it is a bit dated in the terms. Mainly the fact that ether is still in this book is annoying
Read this book if you want to go to sleep. Seriously though i was falling asleep reading this boring book. this dude describes these stupid essays written in 1920 like Tom Clancy describes how a bullet got shot and hit nothing in 3 chapters.
