3-minute Einstein Digesting His Life, Theories & Influence in 3-minute Morsels by Paul Parsons, John Gribbin

Everyone has heard of Albert Einstein, but few people have a clear idea of what his theories are all about. Paul Parsons is one of the people who does understand Einstein's theories, and in this ingenious book he has found a way to make them accessible even to people who struggled at mathematics at school. 3-Minute Einstein is the instant introduction to this great genius of time and of our times. Instead of forcing the reader to plow through pages of text to get to the nuggets of truth, this bite-size biography divides Einstein's life into 3-minute morsels - each presented as an easily digestible visual snack while still taking care not to distort the science. You can read it at the speed of light.

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
