This book is a really fun explanation of Einstein's Theory of Relativity. The tone is quite whimsical and there are delightful and helpful illustrations on every page. Having your brain warped was never so much fun!

Incidentally, one of the things from this book that has stuck with me over the years, and which has served as valuable illumination in other areas of study, including literature and theology, is the idea that even science cannot function apart from myth. (The author devotes one chapter to this very topic and it is quite revelatory.)
