Relativity Simply Explained

By Martin Gardner This is the best favo Gardner is always highly readable at least in my experience Used to devour his non fiction and Asimov s in high school and they were both delightful Alas now they are both woefully out of date however most of their mathematical books have enough solid info that s current I would still recommend them This one I would probably supplement with a newer book however Gardner s explanations are the clearest I ve found for the basic principle of relativity

    This was such ja nice read The only reason it doesn't get 5 Stars is that it is obviously outdated by now Overall a lot of ideas are still totally valid and it is so nice to see a viewpoint that is a couple of years old before I was interested in astronomyI highlighted some mistakes in the book that are already now replaced with newer theories Some things just make you smile like when Pluto put into the groups of planets or other ideas b
