The premise of this book is that the effects of the special theory of relativity are a kinematical perspective rather than being real; but "reality" is a slippery concept, and it is expected that the reader will keep that in mind.

The author argues in favor of logical instead of historical trend in teaching of relativity and that special relativity is neither paradoxical nor correct, but the most natural description of the real space-time valid for all practical purposes.

This is a book on the foundations of Special Relativity from a synthetic viewpoint. The book has a strong visual appeal, modeling with affine geometry. As a subproduct we develop several programs to visualize relativistic motions.
