In the century since the publication of the special theory of relativity, there remains a tendency to venerate Einstein's genius without actually understanding his achievement. This book offers the opportunity to truly comprehend the workings of one of humanity's greatest minds. Acclaimed by Einstein himself, it is among the clearest, most readable expositions of relativity theory. It explains the problems Einstein faced, the experiments that led to his theories, and what his findings reveal about the forces that govern the universe. The concepts of relativity and the fourth dimension unfold with all the vivid excitement of research into the unknown, in language anyone can readily understand.

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:
