Albert Einstein–the father of modern physics proposed the theory of relativity. Even today, scientists find evidence supporting his theories while conducting research with advanced equipment.
He wrote this book “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.”
While the theory of relativity enriched astronomy and physics during the 20th century, technology today is getting ahead because of Einstein. Relativity: The Special and the General Theory caters to those interested in understanding the conceptual basics of scientific and technological advancements that Einstein proposed, in simple terms.
