This text is intended either as a supplement to a traditional physics course which includes special relativity, or as a textbook for a course in geometry or relativity. It emphasizes the fact that special relativity is just hyperbolic trigonometry.

At the end of the 19th century light was regarded as an electromagnetic wave propagating in a material medium called ether. The speed c appearing in Maxwell's wave equations was the speed of light with respect to the ether...

The author argues in favor of logical instead of historical trend in teaching of relativity and that special relativity is neither paradoxical nor correct, but the most natural description of the real space-time valid for all practical purposes.
