    1. Bertrand Arthur William Russell, 3rd Earl Russell, OM, FRS, was a Welsh philosopher, historian, logician, mathematician, advocate for social reform, pacifist, and prominent rationalist Although he was usually regarded as English, as he spent the majority of his life in England, he was born in Wales, where he also died.He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1950 in recognition of his varied and significant writings in which he champions humanitarian ideals and freedom of thought.

    2. عصر بت شکنیبا خوندن راجع به دوران روشنگری که نیوتن رو بت خودش قرار داده بود و مثل یه پیامبر از هر کارش تقلید می کرد، حتی در موضوعاتی که ربطی به فیزیک نداشتن، دورانی که بزرگ ترین فیلسوفش (کانت) هم در حقیقت چیزی جز یکی از خیل ستایندگان نیوتن نبود و سعی می کرد فلسفه ش رو بر محور نیوت [...]

    3. Segala hal tentang Einstein selalu diawali dengan pertanyaan, mengapa harus Einstein?Mengapa diantara sekian milyar manusia yang pernah hadir di bumi, dia yang harus terpilih sebagai ikon kejeniusan dan puncak evolusi manusia? Mengapa bukan Newton yang karyanya tentang Mekanika-Gravitasi-Optika-Kalkulus, yang telah merubah total sejarah manusia malah seolah tersisih? Mengapa bukan Thomas A. Edison yang dalam segala keterbatasannya, berhasil mennghasilkan penemuan lebih dari 1000 macam paten? Men [...]

    4. هذا الكتاب أجمل وأبدع ماقرأت في تبسيط النظرية النسبية (الخاصة والعامة) لأينشتين, قرأت من قبل فى تبسيط النظرية لمصطفي مشرفة "مختارات من العلم" ولمصطفي محمود " أينشتين والنسبية" وكذلك لإيزاك عظيموف كاتب الخيال العلمي , ولكن بساطة ووضوح أسلوب برتراند راسل تفوقت عليهم جميعاً وعزز [...]

    5. Relativity makes perfect sense when I read about it, but I cannot explain it to anyone once I close the book. Perhaps I do not REALLY get relativity after all, but I certainly thought I did while working my way through this book. It is clear, concise, and readable. It probably is not Lord Russell’s fault that my clarity closed as I turned the last page.

    6. برتراند راسل ليس عالم فيزياء ولكنه فيلسوف وعالم رياضيات ومنطق ومؤرخ وناقد اجتماعي. لا شك أن تخصصه في الرياضيات ساعده بشكل كبير على فهم النظرية النسبية بشقيها الخاص والعام ومهارته في الكتابة سمحت له بتلخيصها في أسلوب دقيق وسهل الفهم في آن لدرجة أن كتابه هذا أسهل بكثير من كتاب [...]

    7. I am wholly unequipped to summarize the learnings of this book b/c I understood maybe ten thoughts, and when I think about those thoughts, I am sure that I misunderstood them. That being said, BR is a terrific writer and being confused by his wit and writing is preferable to being confused by almost anyone else.Thoughts I think MIGHT be true from the book:- all things in the universe are in motion relative to everything else, there's no proper point of reference- conventional physics and Euclide [...]

    8. In explaining relativistic Physics, Bertrand Russell launched a formidable attack on our instinctive knowledge of Physics that have been nourished by our school and high school curriculumn, and when the dust had settled, it was he who stood the victor. I can't say I have understood each and every line of the book, but I can vouch that my conception of Physics has changed.

    9. This should go on the shelf, books stolen from my father. This was a pivotal book when I read it at the age of 13 or 14. I should read it again, I might have missed something the first time.

    10. مبدأيا يجب أن يكون هذا آخر كتاب علمي أقرأه باللغة العربية حان الوقت للنضج و ال 4 نجوم ليست لسهولة الكتاب فربما أكون لم أفهم منه سوى من 70 % إلى 80 % فقط من الكتابولكن تلك الطريقة التي يشكل بيها برتراند راسل نظرته للعالم من خلال منظاري الرياضيات والفيزياء مثيرة للإعجابفتعليقه على [...]

    11. I understand relativity only vaguely more so than before I read this. I don't know whether that's due to my own inability to comprehend it (most likely), Russell's explanations, or relativity itself (also likely).

    12. içerik kesinlikle çok zengin ve isminin hakkı verilmiş. sadece abc ile anlatılmış rölativite. yalnız çeviri başarısız. çevirmenin bilim adamı olmaması bunda önemli etken olmuş sanırım ama okunması gereken bir kitapmış. tavsiye ederim.

    13. Written with the typical clarity and wit of Russell. Only reason its not 5 is that i still dont understand relativity. I may be hopeless

    14. Buat yang nyerah baca tulisan Einstein atau Leonard Engel yang jelimet, cobalah baca versi Bertrand Russel ini.Buku terbaik bagi yang ingin memahami teori relativitas umum dan khusus Einstein. Ditulis dengan penjelasan yang runut dan sederhana, tanpa mengikis esensi dari teori itu sendiri

    15. Available for free: ubu/sound/russellml Courtesy of the gorgeous UbuWeb. (Running time: 3hrs, 20mins; 34,7 MB)A classic, made all the more appealing by Derek Jacobi's lovely inflection. Plus this is actually my first audiobook: usually I prefer audioshortstories!Passion, studies and eventually work have always led to my reading mostly fiction. Often I've felt in need of some scientific divulgation for a change. And given my long-standing fascination for astronomy, I thought starting from the bas [...]

    16. My first attempt to understand Einstein's concept of relativity. I read a Croatian translation of this book (which I've lost meanwhile). Though it was a very interesting read, it made me believe the Theory of Relativity is simply much too difficult a subject for me to comprehend. The analogies weren't revealing.What a wonderful feeling it was when I started reading 'Galloping with Light', i.e. 'Relativity Free of Folklore' and realized I was not beyond hope, that all I needed was to be taught ho [...]

    17. Read it, get confused around the middle, be glad you have read it once you have finished. This is a short, extremely helpful, introduction to Einstein's Relativity Theory. It's about spacetime you knew something about it!

    18. A classic! I read it years back. I enjoyed every page of it, every word of it. It's nice to learn relativity from a philosopher than a physicist. It got me interested in the philosophy of Physics. Very well written like other Russell's books.

    19. If ever you wanted to know about the consequences of Einstein's special and general theories of relativity (things like time dilation and curved space-time) without seeing a single mathematical equation, this book is for you.

    20. ABC of relativity is as complex as #$! of relativity. Though the author has tried to explain relativity through multiple examples, please dont expect any eureka moment in understanding relativity.

    21. Gave up on it after 39 pages. I just found it too confusing and the examples were unrelatable. The book smelled nice though because it was old and musty :)

    22. با کتاب صوتی و پی دی اف زبان اصلی شروع به خواندن کردم.سعی می کنم از هر بخش خلاصه ای موثر تهیه کنم.

    23. Mr. Russell's instruction on General Relativity is really good.He does a great job discussing the importance of the constant of the speed of light. He gets into what happens when we perceive events that happen in an interval less than the speed of light and also greater than the speed of light. I didn't quite get one of his train analogies but I do plan to reread that material.Equally important, he provides nice discussion on the idea of what Time Space is.Also, because it is General Relativity, [...]

    24. İlgilisine, Bilal'e anlatır gibi anlatıyor. Russel, anlatmak istediğini desteklemek için bazı bölümlerde matematiğe başvurmuş. Her ne kadar matematiği çoğu matematik bilmeyen insan için anlaması güç olsa da kitap genel haliyle anlaşılır bir dille yazılmış. Say Yayınları'ndan çıkan baskısında da yazıldığı gibi Russel aslında bu kitabı tamamiyle ".'nın ABC'si" kitapları çok satılıyor diye maddi gelir etme amacıyla yazıyor fakat bana göre ortaya çıkan [...]

    25. I only knew Bertrand Russell as a great philosopher and writer; consequently, I was quite surprised to find that he wrote a book on explaining Einstein's special and general relativity for the public. I decided to read this book despite I've read many before regarding this topic. I still learn something new every time I read physics books no matter how many times I've come across the topic. What caught my attention for this book is the philosophical perspective of the writer towards science. Bei [...]

    26. Definitely a great read for the imaginative. Sir Russell shakes up the ideas we learned about in school, making for an interesting read for me.

    27. Overall a good introduction to the special and general theory of relativity. Some of the examples that Russell conveys to explain the underpinning concepts of relativity are a little obfuscated and may require a second reading through or at least leaving the reader responsible to meditate on the illustrations. Russell highlights the Lorentz transform to show the mathematical reader the formula for such things as time-dilation and 'interval'. He gives a good geometric construction of the ideas be [...]

    29. Anything from Bertie is hard to passover .Being the ace logician and meta philosophical genius that he is , he attempts here to unravel the implications of Einstein's relativity theory and what it means to anyone living on the third rock from the sun . The language is exceedingly common as he paints a broad canvas and introduces the readers to a multitude of concepts and the co-relation between them . Liked how he illustrates the very humble notion that we still have a lot to learn still and asp [...]

    30. Oddly, half way through I felt like I was reading Einstein's dreams but written decades earlier. This is a great way to understand the impact of relativity on thought. The idea that perspective is everything, while very specific in its utility in science and math has real impact on philosophical thought. This book is a reminder that philosophy and mathematics were not so separate as it talks about the conceptualization and abstraction that is required to be able to see a line as not the shortest [...]
