Description

What could be better than an introduction to the theory of relativity by Albert Einstein himself? Relativity: The Special and General Theory is Einstein's original text, written for the layperson over a century ago. Special and General relativity explain the structure of space-time and provide a theory of gravitation. Einstein’s theories shocked the world with their counterintuitive results, including the dissolution of absolute time. In this book he brings a simplified form of his profound understanding of the subject to the layperson. In the words of Einstein: “The present book is intended, as far as possible, 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.” The book is challenging at times but, when approached patiently, proves itself one of the most lucid explanations of Relativity to be found anywhere. Einstein shattered common-sense notions of space and time with the publication of his special theory of relativity in 1905. In the general theory of relativity, published in 1916, he extended the special theory to include gravity, supplanting Newton's law of universal gravitation, the zenith of the Scientific Revolution. In this book, Einstein took his revolutionary theory directly to the people. In simple terms, he carefully laid out the basic concepts of relativity. But over one hundred years have passed since Einstein penned this classic; many advances have been made in our understanding of relativity and space and time. 100 years after Einstein published his first papers on relativity, this classic account by the man himself is now ready for easy listening of twenty-first century readers. "All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man's life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual toward freedom." –Albert Einstein This audio book application contains audio files for all chapters in one download, so you can listen to the book on the go without the need for an internet connection.
