    Some insights

    The book contains many insights, and the enthusiasm is appreciated. The math is still a challenge.

    No maths required!

    A mind blowing journey through Einstein’s special and general theories of relativity. This book explains why – for example – time <i>really does</i> slow down when clocks speed up (and so why we age more slowly when we travel more quickly). Abundantly illustrated with easy-to-grasp analogies (as well as a lot of background tales from the history of science), Professors Cox and Forshaw do an excellent job of opening this subject up to the ordinary reader – it’s clear they’re used to explaining counterintuitive theories to folk whose experience is limited to the everyday. They will coax your imagination well out of its comfort zone and into sector Mind-Blown. The maths is optional. I loved this book. I might have to read it again.
