The Einstein Theory of Relativity | [H. A. Lorentz]

The Einstein Theory of Relativity

Whether it is true or not that not more than 12 persons in all the world are able to understand Einstein's Theory, it is nevertheless a fact that there is a constant demand for information about this much-debated topic of relativity. The books published on the subject are so technical that only a person trained in pure physics and higher mathematics is able to fully understand them. In order to make a popular explanation of this far-reaching theory available, the present book was written.

Audible Editor Reviews

H. A. Lorentz was a Dutch physicist and Nobel Prize winner whose transformation equations were later used by Albert Einstein to describe space and time. Despite his intimidating credentials, Lorentz managed to write a book on Einstein's theory that anyone with basic scientific knowledge will understand. Building on this accessibility, narrator Brian Troxell's performance has the informal quality of a friendly discussion rather than the stiffness of a lecture. While Lorentz doesn't cover the theory in great detail, listeners will leave with a basic understanding of the theory and the experiments used to validate it.

    Story
    "This "book" is a joke - a bad joke"
    What disappointed you about The Einstein Theory of Relativity?

    Said essentially nothing about relativity theory. Just a short, rambling, unfocused, truncated description of how Einstein derived the theory, but nothing about the theory itself.


    Would you ever listen to anything by H. A. Lorentz again?

    No


    What aspect of Brian Troxell’s performance would you have changed?

    The performance wasn't all that bad


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None. It is worthless and disappointing.


    Any additional comments?

    Actual book might make a passable paperweight.
