Easy Lessons in Einstein
Published in 1920, Slosson’s Easy Lessons in Einstein is one of the first popularizations of Einstein’s theory of relativity. This book is meant to convey to the general reader the ideas of relativity in non-mathematical terms, by the use of thought experiements and pop-cultural references of the day. This edition also includes a short article by Einstein on Time, Space and Gravitation. (Summary by JoeD) (2 hr 52 min)

great book, greater explanation
the simple explanations in this book make it easy to understand one of life's most confusing problems.
easier read than Einstein
after trying to read the special and general theory of relativity i switched to this and had a much easier time understanding.
overall great audio. good subject matter and great narrators.
intellectually challenging book
Very interesting book and great readers, thank you for your great work and for a trip in space and time!
Content decent, reading low quality
varied readers made this hard to follow. lipsmacking in one chapter ruined it for me.
great Content not always easy to listen to
Enjoyable book. All the readers did a good job!
