Instead of a table of contents there is a listing of the various sections of Einstein's writings. There are no chapter numbers or page numbers! And of course no index. In reading this document it appears that this is a collection of Einstein's early notes and essays that were never sent to a publisher.

Save your money and find a properly published copy of Einstein's works. The edition I have lacks any publication information apart from the fact that it was printed in San Bernardino, CA, on 15 July Other than that, there is nothing anywhere in the book that identifies the publisher. The edition that I got from Amazon is simply riddled with typographical and formatting errors, which in some places are so bad that they make it difficult to follow the text. My complaint is with the poor quality control.

Find one from a more reliable publisher. Hardcover Verified Purchase.

This book published by Ancient Wisdom Publications December 17, , has not been proof-read by anyone with knowledge of mathematics. It is riddled with errors and typos in equations throughout the entire book such that it is useless for anyone who wishes to understand the subject.

I was able to correct many of the math errors through my own derivations, but there are many more likely errors for which the context does not provide sufficient information to make corrections, so this book should not be purchased by anyone. You would think, for the sake of credibility alone, that a publisher would familiarize themselves with the work they are publishing.

First, a synopsis on the back of the volume states that Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize for his work on relativity; he was, however, awarded the prize for his work on the photoelectric effect, NOT relativity.

Second, the description of the book's content on Amazon follows Einstein's preface where he states " After reading Walter Isaacson's brilliant biography, "Einstein" and finally coming away with an understanding of Einstein's theories, I felt I could make the leap and actually attempt to read something written by the most famous genius of the twentieth century whose theories would transform science and the world.

I chose Einstein's, "Relativity: The Special and General Theory. Well, except for the portions of the book that used mundane objects such as a train, an embankment, Times Square or a clock to describe the most famous theory of all time, the rest of the book a good 60 percent was incomprehensible to me.

It could have just as well been written in Latin. I strongly recommend that unless you have a scientific background, you should not start off by reading this book if you are at all interested in understanding the mind and theories of this, undeniable, genius.

I recommend the Isaacson's book I mentioned above as a good starting point.
