A wonderful well explaned book up to page 77 where they introduce a formula out of the blue without explaining why they changed the "+" sign to a "-" sign. I couldn't figure out what they were doing and completely liost the thread.

This book provides a very in-depth view of relativity with just the most influential formula.

I like this book because there are some new analogies that are easy to remember.

However, I have to say that this book is still a bit too lengthy and lacks a concise summary in the end of every chapter.
