Relativity: The Special and General Theory (Paperback) Price: Rs.593

Widely considered the greatest contribution to the philosophy of science, Einstein?s theory of relativity has often been viewed as comprehensible only to highly trained scientists. This book, however, contains the great physicist?s own explanation of both the special and the general theories, written for readers interested in the theory but not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics. Presenting the ideas in their simplest, most intelligible form, this three-part volume outlines the special theory, the general theory, and in a final part, offers considerations on the universe as whole.

A Great Book From Einstein

A really great book for me and "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". I am mainly attracted by the preface. It is written in simple language.I have read it with rapt attention.But I have gone through some chapters again and again to visualize and understand the fact.Read it . You definitely like it.

This is an excellent piece of food for thought

This is relativity explained by Einstein himself, without using math. There might have been a plain English explanation that is slightly more crisp, however, would you not want to read it from the master himself? The special relativity section is especially clear, and detailed. The section on general relativity is rather brief, and gives you the sense that it is just a flavor, not the full story. Yet it gives you enough to be very interested. The English translation from German could be better, but it really does not make it inexplicable. Those who complain that the translation could not be understood probably would not understand the book even if it is translated better. All in all, I would recommend reading it after some other exposition on the subject.

Must Reads

After reading books by Hawking, Kaku, Greene, and others on the topic, none are more lucid as Einstein himself in describing relativity to the non-physicist. Long on my list of must-reads, I finally got this for myself. After hearing a lifetime of comments and reviews about these theories, it is a good thing to go straight to the source. The roots of relativity are suprisingly simple and may be understood through the thought experiments described within.

A great book if you know what it is meant for.

This is a great book for all those who really want to understand the intricacies of the theory of relativity in depth, understand its origin and appreciate the beauty of it.

The language is simple and mathematical formulas are avoided, but that does not diminish the amount of information or analysis of the subject, nor does it makes this book a peace of cake. You may even have to read some of the parts twice to fully grasp them. But the understanding of relativity that the book provides is worth the effort.

Very complicated but if you read it carefully then nothing like it.
Theory is quite complex but if you are real modern physics lovers then worth book to buy.
Thank you filpkart for offering high discount in this book
