Read by Ciufi Galeazzi

(4.8 stars; 6 reviews)

The ABC of Relativity clearly and engagingly explains Einstein's Theory of Relativity to the layperson. It is considered to be a significant contribution to the popularization of science. Its author, Bertrand Russell, was an acclaimed British mathematician, philosopher and logician. Please note that in a few of the chapters, diagrams are included which clarify the author's discourse. The listener may wish to consult a published text to refer to these diagrams. (Summary by Ciiufi Galeazzi) (4 hr 44 min)

Reviews


(5 stars)

Excellent reader. Russell is a genius but even he stumbles. His explanation of relativity is lucid. But he ignores the beauty and symmetry of nature. The Marxist destruction of civilization will corrupt Einstein’s work and the work of other science mathematical geniuses. Russell never saw it coming and even inadvertently participated.
