Albert Einstein is one of the iconic figures of the twentieth science, achieving a popular status that has not been equalled by other mathematicians, physicists or astrophysicists.

Yet few people have read his work, even his popular essays. It gives me great pleasure to present to you the eight short essays with guided notes in this book. How best to introduce these essays then to borrow some words written by Albert Einstein for the preface of the book Introduction to the Theory of Relativity written by his colleague Peter Gabriel Bergmann at the Princeton Institute for Advanced Studies;

“I believe that more time and effort might well be devoted to the systematic teaching of the theory of relativity … the theory of relativity has a special appeal because of its inner consistency and the logical simplicity of its axioms …
it is my hope that many students will enjoy the book and gain from it a better understanding of the accomplishments and problems of modern theoretical physics.”

For those of you wanting to learn more about the Theory of Relativity, you are welcome to read Bergmann’s excellent book, which is available in digital form at archive.org.

The purpose of the Arm Chair Astronomy series is to make available well-written essays in popular astronomy written by expert astronomers and astrophysicists.

Volume Four of the Arm Chair Astronomy Series features Einstein and Relativity – Eight Easy Essays by Albert Einstein, essays about his Special and General Theories of Relativity.

The essays chosen were written by Einstein explicitly for a popular audience. The essays were, for instance, published in The London Times and the Frankfurter Zeitung.
