Einstein's Relativity: The Ultimate Key to the Cosmos by Fred I. Cooperstock and Steven Tieu

"Einstein's Relativity" is a concise overview of two of the most well known (by name) theories - Special and General Relativity theories. It is very accessible as it uses as little mathematics as possible and you walk away from the book with a sound understanding of what relativity is all about and you'll know for sure, whether or not the relativity theory really says that everything is relative.

This book handles the topic at a nice fast pace without leaving out some of the most important applications and proofs for both Special and General theory with the same examples that you would stumble upon in a Relativity textbook or in a course of Special Relativity.

The usual examples include moving near light speed and what seems to happen in different reference frames and the twin paradox and why it's not really a paradox as such.

Although it gives the basic gist of relativity, the book also gives an insight into some cool ideas such as time traveling and time machines - are they possible and what does relativity theory have to say about it? You'll find out in this book.

As an introduction to Einstein's relativity this is book is very good. However as it has a very nice style and easy text, you'll be a little sad to finish it so soon, as it is less than 150 pages long.
