1. No mathamatics If you read “Brief history of time(BHT) - by Stephen Hawking”, I think you will not be satisfied because some topics you won’t be able to understand and you will be confused. So, instead of reading that you should read later ver. Time magazine's "Man of the Century", Albert Einstein is the founder of modern physics and his theory of relativity is the most important scientific idea of the modern era. In this short book, Einstein explains, using the minimum of mathematical terms, the basic ideas and principles of the theory that has shaped the world we live in today/5(12).

Today we are blessed with two extraordinarily successful theories of physics. The first is Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, which describes the large-scale behavior of matter in a curved spacetime. The second is quantum mechanics. This theory describes the properties and behavior of matter and radiation at their smallest scales. A super-quick, super-painless guide to the theory that conquered the universe. For years, the general theory of relativity has been a pillar of modern physics. The basic idea is so elegant that you don’t need superpowers to understand it. Begin with Isaac Newton’s first law of motion: An object remains in uniform motion unless acted on.

An accesible version of Einstein’s masterpiece of theory, written by the genius himself According to Einstein himself, this book is intended “to give an exact insight into the theory of Relativity to those readers who, from a general scientific and philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Relativity today. Commack, N.Y.: Nova Science Publishers, © (OCoLC) Material Type: Conference publication. The description of special relativity in Einstein’s book is pleasurable and easy to read.

I can imagine students in my special relativity course reading Einstein’s description and taking away a better understanding of the subject. As to whether the general public can understand the work, I think Einstein’s own recommendation says it best: “The work presumes a standard of education Author: Nelson Christensen.
