By: Lincoln Barnett
The Layman's Guide to Relativity
Lincoln Kinnear Barnett (1909–1979) was an author and editor whose work appeared in Life Magazine over many years and who wrote popular books on a wide range of topics. He struck a chord with a little classic of popular scientific exposition in 1948, The Universe and Dr. Einstein. Praised by Einstein himself as a fine introduction to relativity for the layman, The Universe and Dr. Einstein has been published in more than 100 editions in at least thirteen languages since its original appearance.
Critical Acclaim for The Universe and Dr. Einstein:
"The main ideas of the theory of relativity are extremely well presented." — Albert Einstein, from the Preface.
"Lincoln Barnett has performed a task of inestimable value . . . clear and lucid." — Christian Science Monitor
