A good read for the science lover, esp. Feb 07, Peter added it Shelves: science. You've got to be kidding? The average rating for this is 4. These are reprints of Einstein's original papers on relativity--both special and general. The papers are filled with multivariable calculus, both differential and integral, and with tensor mathematics.

Perhaps a real physicist has read this book, or sections of it, but I wonder how many of them contributed to the rating. Einstein's contributions are mammouthly important, and on a scale of 1 to 5 he deserves a 4,!
I don't have the temerity to rate this book. What I wrote was intentionally hyperbolic and I had no intention of excluding physicists from possible Goodreads membership. Mea Culpa! My point was, simply, don't pick this book up as a path to a layman's understanding of relativity--it really is for the physicists among you.

Collected within is Einstein's own writings on the Theory of Relativity, as well as his reflections on politics, religion, and the ultimate significance of his scientific discoveries May 12, Erickson rated it it was amazing Shelves: physics , relativity-theory. As usual, lucid writing from Einstein with his very firm opinions on his ideas. Will re-read this again once I master tensors and general relativity.
