Relativity and quantum physics touch the very basis of physical reality, altering commonsense notions of space and time, cause and effect. Both have reputations for complexity, but the basic ideas behind relativity and quantum physics are, in fact, simple and comprehensible by anyone. The essence of relativity in a single sentence: The laws of physics are the same for all observers in uniform motion. Relativity and quantum physics are the gateway to understanding the latest in science news - theories about time travel, string theory, black holes, space telescopes, particle accelerators, and other cutting-edge developments.

This is truly a course of physics for non-scientists as the subtitle asserts. Einstein's complex-sounding, intimidating theories of relativity turn out to be easy enough to understand when explained properly in layman's terms. How about that, Einstein wasn't way over my head after all. Granted, the professor tends to repeat the same thing too much but may do so on purpose to force the listener to remember important concepts.
