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.
