Special relativity has a distinct poignancy to it; sometimes those who have the privilege of studying it closely feel they are consuming a hearty meal in a warm cafe while those not so blessed huddle outside like hungry children, watching through a frosted glass.

Special Relativity: A First Encounter starts with a broad historical introduction and motivation of the basic notions. The central chapters are dedicated to special relativity, mainly following Einstein's historical route

Special Relativity: A First Encounter starts with a broad historical introduction and motivation of the basic notions. The central chapters are dedicated to special relativity, mainly following Einstein's historical route. Later chapters turn to various applications in all parts of physics and everyday life. Unlike other books on the subject, the current status of the experimental foundations of special relativity is accurately reported and the experiments explained

Special Relativity provides the foundations of our knowledge of space and time. Without it, our understanding of the world, and its place in the universe, would be unthinkable. Special Relativity: A First Encounter starts with a broad historical introduction and motivation of the basic notions. This book will appeal to anyone wanting a gentle introduction to the subject, as well as those who are interested in seriously learning about Einstein's legacy.

He then describes the consequences and applications of special relativity and key experiments. He then describes the consequences and applications of special relativity and key experiments.

Special relativity provides the foundations of our knowledge of space and time. Special relativity provides the foundations of our knowledge of space and time. This book gives a concise, elementary, yet exceptionally modern, introduction to special relativity. It is a gentle yet serious 'first encounter', in that it conveys a true understanding rather than purely reports the basic facts.

Special Relativity provides the foundations of our knowledge of space and time. Without it, our understanding of the world, and its place in the universe, would be unthinkable. This book gives a concise, elementary, yet exceptionally modern, introduction to special relativity. It is a gentle yet serious 'first encounter', in that it conveys a true understanding rather than purely reports the basic facts. Only very elementary mathematical knowledge is needed to master it (basic high-school maths), yet it will leave the reader with a sound understanding of the subject. Special Relativity: A First Encounter starts with a broad historical introduction and motivation of the basic notions. The central chapters are dedicated to special relativity, mainly following Einstein's historical route. Later chapters turn to various applications in all parts of physics and everyday life. Unlike other books on the subject, the current status of the experimental foundations of special relativity is accurately reported and the experiments explained. This book will appeal to anyone wanting a gentle introduction to the subject, as well as those who are interested in seriously learning about Einstein's legacy.

To the other reviewer who wonders who this book is for, please read the back cover:

"This book will appeal to anyone wanting an introduction to the subject, as well as being background reading for students beginning a course in Physics."

I find the book quite well written. It gives a nice description of the roots of SR and is not too mathematically demanding (for a Physics student)

I don't understand who this book is for.
It is far too technical for the lay person and far too abbreviated for a physicist.
Being a classically trained physicist myself, I can't think of anyone I could recommend this book to, sadly.
Now I know why my local library removed this book from circulation and gave it away for free.
