Paperback

Overview

A readable and entertaining look at how Einstein’s special theory of relativity gives us a new understanding of the nature of time

Relativity ought to be an important part of everyone’s education. Its subject is time, with which we all think we are familiar. Einstein’s special theory of relativity reveals that some of our most intuitive notions about time are shockingly wrong. This clear, lively, and informal exposition of special relativity takes a highly original approach to introduce readers to the true nature of time. It is accessible to anyone who remembers a little high school algebra and elementary geometry. It’s About Time offers deep insights to curious readers who have no technical scientific background.

Reviews
An excellent book on Einstein's special theory of relativity. . . . I clearly see the strength of this book in lucid, self-contained, lively, down-to-earth, and meticulous presentation. . . . I have no hesitation in saying that this is the best book on the special theory of relativity at a semi-popular level I have ever read.–-K. S. Birbhadra, The Observatory
