Reviews

While the myriad photographs are fascinating, the bigger draw here is the wonderfully simple explanations of some of Einstein's theories...This entertaining effort displays clarity and intelligence. It has plenty of information for reports and is also a good choice for browsing. starred review, School Library Journal
