Here a physicist and a professor of literature guide general readers through the ideas that revolutionized our conception of the physical universe.

Review:

"In a remarkable and unusual collaboration [Mook and Vargish] offer us Inside Relativity.... Happily, for all its seriousness of intent, Mook and Vargish's book has a refreshing lightness, imparting at once an air of easy reading (it is very well written) and a momentum that propels one from opening enigma to closing coda.... The pseudo-paradoxes and quasi-conundrums of the theory are delightfully illustrated...."--Lane Hughston, The Times Higher Education Supplement

"This outstanding book provides an excellent exposition on relativity with virtually no mathematics. Both special and general relativity are disclosed along with some information on the contributors and their personalities.... The book is well suited to nonscience majors. Nevertheless, a science major would also benefit from reading it because of its beautiful development of basic concepts."--David Fink, Science Books & Films
