What is Relativity

A review of What is Relativity by Rob Mason

Einstein Centenary

Very few people know what the theory of relativity is all about, and a common myth holds that the theory is too esoteric or difficult for the average person to understand. What is relativity? will shatter the myth, proving that anyone can understand the basics of Einstein’s ideas. Bennett’s intuitive, non-mathematical approach will give a large audience of readers their first real understanding of how relativity works and why it is so important not only to science and scientists, but to the way all of us view ourselves as human beings. No matter whether you are a poet, a philosopher, or an aspiring physicist, What is Relativity? is sure to give you new insights into Einstein’s ideas and why they matter.
