Why Does E=mc²? by Brian Cox
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Why Does E=mc²? (And Why Should We Care?)
by Brian Cox is easily the best book I've ever read about special and general relativity targeted at the general reader. Cox takes the reader deeply into the theory. He painlessly introduces the reader to the basics of the mathematics needed to understand some of the more beautiful aspects of both theories and he does so more skillfully than any other writer on the subject - including Einstein himself. This is a must read for anyone who wants to be more scientifically literate.
