Using layman's language, Einstein presents his Nobel Prize winning theory of Relativity. Without mathematical notations he moves from the pillars of physics and mathematics such as Newton's theory of gravitation and Euclid's geometry and shows how he arrived at his theory. He covers both the Special Theory, a theory of space and time in which he states that the laws of physics are the same for all observers in uniform motion, and that the speed of light is a constant regardless of motion, and the General Theory, where he postulates his theory of gravitation which take a profound role in his field equations.
