 I am re-reading the printed copy of “Relativity: The Special and General Theory” by A. Einstein (1920)

also available at:

To me  it is one of the easiest yet the most complex books I have read.

This reminds me of the Repaublic by Plato.

I shall try to write a review of the book based on my experience of reading Martin Heidegger’s “Being and Time” (1927). 

Do you have any comment on the book?
