This book was recommended by my Physics advisor - to help me understand relativity. A short and all encompassing text, very well written and easy to understand.


This book was recommended by my college physics advisor to help grasp spacial relativity. Relly well written, a summary of many areas of modern science. Everyone should read this book!

excellent, clear presentation of usually difficult science

This book clearly describes natural phenomenon in an orderly, logical progression that brings such concetps as the quanta and the expanding universe within the grasp of the non-physics trained mind. The language is normal, non jargon sentences, and the technical terms that are used are clearly explained. Perhaps even more important, it is generally fun to read, not nearly as sleep-inducing as other texts I've encountered.
