The Theory of Relativity and Other Essays by Albert Einstein 


Hardcover with dust jacket in very good condition with flaws:   *Small patch of staining to top of spine and  underside of dust jacket, just barely visible on rear bottom. [see photos]   Otherwise, excellent. 

Dust jacket looks pristine in a new archival quality jacket protector.  Book itself reads like new.  Appears unread.  

Here is a collection of Einstein's most important writings on physics. Although dealing with subjects that are initially difficult for most people to comprehend, in these seven essays Einstein reduces the complex to its essentials by presenting his material in a clear and readable manner. Step by step, he guides the reader through the logical processes he followed as he developed the theory of relativity, continually adding his own impressions of science and its concepts. It is in this way that we are allowed a glimpse inside the mind of this brilliant man.

In these seven essays, Einstein reveals the meaning of:

the theory of relativity and E=mc2
physics and reality
the fundamentals of theoretical physics
the common language of science
the laws of science and the laws of ethics, and
an elementary derivation of the equivalence of mass and energy
