Format: Paperback
Eddington explains general relativity much better than Einstein himself. The Master's book for general readers is frustratingly uninformative. Leaving the math to the physicists, Sir Arthur starts with commonly experienced phenomena, proceeding step-by-step through the simpler but still mind-blowing concepts of special relativity, arriving finally at the truly brain-twisting world of general relativity. That's where gravity and black holes live. The truth of these ideas is really beyond the comprehension of 3-D organisms like us. The mathematicians can work out the mechanics and the details, but none of us can really quite "get it." Einstein gives up on the task early, but Eddington sticks with it, taking the reader much farther into Einstein's explanation of the reality in which we - all unknowing - live.
