RELATIVITY (Illustrated Special and General Relativity) By Albert EINSTEIN
eBook (PDF): $6.99

Albert Einstein [Germany] (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics... More > (alongside quantum mechanics). While best known for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2 which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation"), he received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect". This book is intended, as far as possible, 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 theoretical physics. The work presumes a standard of education corresponding to that of a university matriculation examination, and, despite the shortness of the book, a fair amount of patience and force of will on the part of the reader.< Less

How better to learn the Special Theory of Relativity and the General Theory of Relativity than directly from their creator, Albert Einstein himself? In Relativity: The Special and the General Theory,... More > Einstein describes the theories that made him famous, illuminating his case with numerous examples and a smattering of math (nothing more complex than high-school algebra). Einstein's book is not casual reading, but for those who appreciate his work without diving into the arcana of theoretical physics, Relativity will prove a stimulating read. "The present book is intended," Einstein wrote in 1916, "as far as possible, 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 theoretical physics."< Less

From the PREFACE: ""The present book is intended, as far as possible, to give an exact insight into the theory of Relativity to those readers who, from a general scientific and... More > philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics. The work presumes a standard of education corresponding to that of a university matriculation examination, and, despite the shortness of the book, a fair amount of patience and force of will on the part of the reader. The author has spared himself no pains in his endeavour to present the main ideas in the simplest and most intelligible form, and on the whole, in the sequence and connection in which they actually originated. In the interest of clearness, it appeared to me inevitable that I should repeat myself frequently, without paying the slightest attention to the elegance of the presentation." -Albert Einstein< Less

General Relativity: A Concise Guide For Beginners By Paul G. Bennett

This book is the second in a series dealing with Einstein’s theory of relativity, the first of these being “Special Relativity: A concise guide for beginners”. In 1905 Einstein had... More > produced his special theory of relativity, in which he explained how the speed of light is constant for all observers. However this was a theory that was not fully understood or accepted by many of Einstein’s intellectual contemporaries, some of whom sought to discredit it. There were indeed problems which Einstein himself knew he had to address. For example, how could Einstein justify his notion of a fixed speed for a beam of light falling in a gravitational field? As explained in this book, reconciling the constant speed of light with gravity, led to an even greater understanding of the nature of space and time. Most of the descriptions in the book are given in terms of diagrams and simple thought experiments, without much recourse to the difficult mathematics that usually accompanies this fascinating topic.< Less
