**Description**:

This brief book is for the inquisitive reader who wishes to gain an understanding of the immortal work of Einstein, the greatest scientist since Newton. The concepts that form the basis of Einsteinâ€™s Theory of Special Relativity are discussed at a level suitable for Seniors in High School. An introduction to Einsteinâ€™s Theory of General Relativity, a theory of space, time, and motion in the presence of gravity, is given at a popular level.
