LibriVox recording of The Einstein Theory of Relativity by Hendrik A. Lorentz.
Read in English by Availle.
When Albert Einstein published his first paper on relativity theory, it caused a stir in the physicists' community. When more and more evidence was gathered to prove the theory correct, even laymen became interested in it. Since the theory of relativity uses involved higher mathematics, it is considered notoriously difficult to grasp, and at the time it was published, it was claimed that only 12 people in the world were able to fully understand it. One of these was the Dutch physicist Hendrik Lorentz, who wrote the articles collected in this book for a lay audience. He explains the basics of the theory in clear and concise terms without needing any mathematics. All that is needed to fo follow his arguments is a bit of patience and time. (Summary by Availle)

A remarkable eBook read by a remarkable reader
This book about Einstein's Theory of relativity come from the pen of remarkable scientist without whose work Einstein would not have enjoyed the immediate success with which his theory was accepted. The Lorentz Transformation was an independent support for the observed relativistic effects of translating systems. The narrator, Availle is precise and confident. I don't know what her background is, but she certainly knows her stuff! KUDOS!
