Whether it is true or not that not more than 12 persons in all the world are able to understand Einstein's Theory, it is nevertheless a fact that there is a constant demand for information about this much-debated topic of relativity. The books published on the subject are so technical that only a person trained in pure physics and higher mathematics is able to fully understand them. In order to make a popular explanation of this far-reaching theory available, the present book was written.
H. A. Lorentz was a Dutch physicist and Nobel Prize winner whose transformation equations were later used by Albert Einstein to describe space and time. Despite his intimidating credentials, Lorentz managed to write a book on Einstein's theory that anyone with basic scientific knowledge will understand. Building on this accessibility, narrator Brian Troxell's performance has the informal quality of a friendly discussion rather than the stiffness of a lecture. While Lorentz doesn't cover the theory in great detail, listeners will leave with a basic understanding of the theory and the experiments used to validate it.

This "book" is a joke - a bad joke
Said essentially nothing about relativity theory. Just a short, rambling, unfocused, truncated description of how Einstein derived the theory, but nothing about the theory itself.
The performance wasn't all that bad
None. It is worthless and disappointing.
Actual book might make a passable paperweight.
