Landau and Rumer do an excellent job of explaining the basics of relativity. You will be hard pressed to find any book that explains these ideas more clearly or succinctly. Finally, the treatment itself demonstrates the power of theory and experiment in its ability to overturn our most closely held intuitions.

I read this book first time when I was in grade 6. After completion I could not sleep properly for couple of days due to the excitement. I was able to understand the meaning of Special theory of relativity, why time is relative, and it was too much fun and excitement for a person in grade six. Just buy and read it.

Enjoyed reading. Its understanding the concept of relativity rather than going through the subject of "Special theory of relativity" . No need to be a physics scholar to understand the concepts mentioned in the book. This book is for all and is able to make some difficult concepts simple. I love this book.
