2. Beckmann, whose is an immigrant to the USA, thinks that we understand English -- no matter how it is written. He tends to write long sentences.
3. Beckmann thinks we are all physicists and does show the derivation for several formulas he uses. He falls back on his professorship, saying (in effect) look them up for yourself.
4. In attacking Einstein's relativity, Beckmann sees no need to narrow his attack. Thus, he attacks many different theories. I am sure only a historian has heard of most of them.
5. Beckmann does not seem to differentiate (sufficiently) between Special Relativity and General Relativity. They are often both bunched together under Einstein's Relativity. But there is a real difference between the two.
6. I grew up on Einstein, yet I think that Beckmann is mostly correct. For example, in Special Relativity, you will note that light moves at c relative to everything. I can understand the microcosm in which that statement is true. But it has been misapplied often. Light traveling across the Universe -- from this star to that star -- does not necessarily travel at c relative to Earth. Read the book to understand.
Later critique has discovered a flaw in the second half of this text regarding Beckmann's definition for aberration. Nevertheless, Beckmann's writing style is very witty and entertaining.
