The Far Horizons of Time: Time and Mind in the Universe
by H. Chris Ransford
Publisher: De Gruyter Open Ltd 2015
Number of pages: 112
What is Time? Assuming no prior specialized knowledge by the reader, the book raises specific, hitherto overlooked questions about how time works, such as how and why anyone can be made to be, at the very same instant, simultaneous with events that are actually days apart. It examines abiding issues in the physics of time or at its periphery which still elude a full explanation.

by Albert Einstein - Princeton University Press
A condensed unified presentation intended for one who has already digested the mechanics of tensor theory and physical basis of relativity. Einstein's little book serves as an excellent tying-together of loose ends and as a survey of the subject.
by Ludwik Silberstein - D. Van Nostrand
The first six lectures are devoted to Special Relativity, and the remaining ones to Einstein's General Relativity and Gravitation Theory and to relativistic Electromagnetism. Due attention is given to the critically conceptual side of the subject.
by Ruslan Sharipov - Samizdat Press
A regular, smooth, and logically consistent introduction to the subject starting with basic facts like Coulomb law and ending with Einstein's theory of gravitation. A book for mathematics students, references to physical intuition are minimized.
