Albert Einstein’s Relativity: The Special and the General Theory (1920) is a
cornerstone of modern physics. Einstein intended this book for “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.”
Indeed, Einstein’s Relativity shall remain an illuminable and intelligible
exposition, highly quotable as one of the most lucid presentations of the
subject matter.
