In this classic interpretation of Einstein's revolutionary theory, Bertrand Russell, the Nobel Prize-winning philosopher and scientist, offers a fresh, nonmathematical approach to understanding the nature of space and time. Using analogies from everyday life, Russell explains the universe according to Einstein so that everyone can appreciate the genius of the man and the theory.
This new edition has been fully updated by Professor Felix Pirani, who carried out an earlier revision under Russell's supervision. Taking into account the many important discoveries that have been made in astronomy and physics in recent years, it shows how the proofs of Einstein's theories are continually strengthened as our knowledge of the physical world increases.
