"An excellent book ... It captures Einstein's deep insight into the mysteries of space and time. The clarity of Parker's writing style, creative use of illustrations, and humerous cartoons makes the topics ... easy to comprehend. I highly recommend this captivating book for both the nonscientist and scientist." Robert Zimmeraman, Inst. of Theoretical Physics, University of Oregon.
