Item description for Four Lectures on Relativity and Space by Charles Proteus Steinmetz...

1923. In this excellent exposition, Charles Steinmetz, one of America's great electrical geniuses, successfully translated the complex mathematical reasoning at the heart of the theory into language that even the layman can follow. Using analogies, examples, and comparisons as substitutes for intricate formulas and experiments, he has produced a carefully written, scientifically accurate statement of the Einstein's theory of relativity and its fascinating conclusions and deductions which involves only elementary mathematics.

Reviews - What do customers think about Four Lectures on Relativity and Space?

The need to understand Einstein's theories.  Sep 9, 2006
Being an instructor in physics and having stuided relativity for over fifty years, this book by Dr. Steinmentz, is a real accomplishment towards fulfilling Einstein's own statement of "making a subject simple but not to simple...". It is well worth the price and a joy to read such a well displayed presentation in what is usually a difficult subject. This was written for the "layman" but so called "experts" will find that this book is an interesting, different viewpoint when dealing with both the special and general relativity theories. Steinmentz's own conclusions are heavyweight in what can be a most trying study. There is still a need for the general public, to comprehend Einstein and his relativity theories and this book can help fill that gap.
Einstein's theory of relativity for the rest of us  Nov 25, 2005
I have read several books and articles on Einstein's theory of relativity (as well as other of his works), including Einstein's own "The Meaning of Relativity". They were either very math-intensive (including tensor calculus) that even I had trouble following, or oversimplified over-popularized pamphlets that would leave a 6 year old hungry for more.

Steinmetz's book is, in this regard, the only exception I know of, which strikes an excellent balance in simplicity versus correctness. The explanations are crystal clear but not dumbed down, and the reader is left with a genuine feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment for acquiring knowledge of Einstein's theory of relativity, and not just empty soundbites as offered by popular science shows.
