About the Book: It is common knowledge that if the Sun turned into a black hole, it would suck Earth into oblivion. Yet as astrophysicist Jeffrey Bennett points out, black holes don't suck. With that idea in hand, Bennett begins What Is Relativity?, an entertaining introduction to Einstein's theories. Bennett proves anyone can understand the basics of Einstein's ideas. His intuitive, nonmathematical approach gives a wide audience its first real taste of how relativity works and why it is so important not only to science but also to the way we view ourselves as human beings.
