Quite a readable survey of Einstein's achievements and vision. Presents key concepts on spacetime curvature, the flow of time, the General Theory, and its consequences for cosmology.
An original work by the father of relativity himself. Mostly accessible (with some mental effort!) but ther e are a few spots where the math gets a bit intense.
Highly acclaimed popular account of the latest knowledge on Singularities, Black Holes and their implications for cosmology. Can be a bit heavy-going in places, though. There's also an accompanying CD-ROM produced by Crunch Media Corp. and published by Scientific American (1994).
Very accessible cartoon exposition of Einstein's life and times and how he challenged conventional wisdom to come up with the Special Theory.
Comprehensive survey of the field of relativity: its applications to physics and cosmology; its history; and a lot of background on the roles of the key players.
A interactive survey of Einstein's life and times, along with an intelligible exposition of his main theories and their place in modern physics and cosmology.
Excellent and highly accessible distillation of "gravitational lensing" predicted by the General Theory of Relativity.
Very readable account of why, from the standpoint of General Relativity, gravity isn't a "force acting at a distance," but is instead bound up with the curvature of spacetime.
Good backgrounder on the numerous tests that General Relativity has been put through.
