Einstein for Everyone by John D. Norton

Small book cover: Einstein for Everyone

Einstein for Everyone
by

Publisher: Nullarbor Press

Description:
The course is aimed at people who have a strong sense that what Einstein did changed everything. However they do not know enough physics to understand what he did and why it was so important. The course presents just enough of Einstein's physics to give students an independent sense of what he achieved and what he did not achieve.
