Review of Einstein's book on the theory of special and general theories of relativity
This book reveals Einstein's extraordinary ability to imagine the near-impossible to imagine. The man had talents far beyond IQ.
He developed the special and general theories roughly between 1895 and 1915. He presents a very useful guide to both theories using examples from every day life. A lay person with little or no physics or mathematical background can nevertheless grasp the fundament ideas involved.
