For the layman who has a mathematical background and wants to understand the concept of relativity, this book is an excellent help.
Although originally intended for physics students, Richard Feynman's writing is so clear, so understandable, that non-scientists can learn a great deal.
Feynman actually explains the problems with Newton's laws and actually derives and gives the reasoning for Einstein's theories about relativity.
