4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Visitor_of_Universe on November 25, 2005
Format: Paperback
I have read several books and articles on Einstein's theory of relativity (as well as other of his works), including Einstein's own "The Meaning of Relativity". They were either very math-intensive (including tensor calculus) that even I had trouble following, or oversimplified over-popularized pamphlets that would leave a 6 year old hungry for more.

Steinmetz's book is, in this regard, the only exception I know of, which strikes an excellent balance in simplicity versus correctness. The explanations are crystal clear but not dumbed down, and the reader is left with a genuine feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment for acquiring knowledge of Einstein's theory of relativity, and not just empty soundbites as offered by popular science shows.

This book makes it easy to understand. Charles Proteus Steinmetz is a genius, himself. I recommend this book to the novice.
