Getting the Measure of Einstein's Space and Time
by Len Zane
Publisher: University of Nevada, Las Vegas 2014
Number of pages: 181
The space and time introduced by Albert Einstein in 1905 is explained by examining a series of simple thought or 'gedanken' experiments. The development makes extensive use of spacetime diagrams to help readers appreciate the full extent of these changes.

This is a book on the foundations of Special Relativity from a synthetic viewpoint. The book has a strong visual appeal, modeling with affine geometry. As a subproduct we develop several programs to visualize relativistic motions.

The chapters which follow are lectures delivered before the Edinburgh Mathematical Colloquium on the subject of Relativity. The subject is treated in the historical order, the author brought it down to the stage in which it was left by Minkowski.

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.
