HOLLYWOOD, FL, May 28, 2014 – Author and physics teacher Ira Mark Egdall announces the release of his new popular science book, Einstein Relatively Simple: Our Universe Revealed in Everyday Language, published by World Scientific Publishing.
Told with humor, enthusiasm, and rare clarity, Einstein Relatively Simple reveals how a former high school drop-out revolutionized our understanding of space and time. Along the way, the book tracks Einstein through the perils and triumphs of his life — follows his thinking his logic, and his insights — and chronicles the audacity, imagination, and sheer genius of the man recognized as the greatest scientist of the modern era. The book is written especially for those who always wanted to understand Einstein’s ideas but never thought it possible.
A former aerospace program manager, Egdall has been working toward publication of his book for five years, while teaching lay courses in modern physics at OSHER Lifelong Learning Institutes at the University of Miami and Florida International University. In addition, Egdall gives talks on the wonders of the universe at libraries, schools, and civic organizations often dressed as Albert Einstein.
Einstein Relatively Simple has received critical praise:
Prolific science fiction, non-fiction, and fantasy author John DeChancie says:
“It’s terrific. Extremely well written, understandable, and displays a logical and clear development and explication of some of the most hard-to-understand ideas in the worldÂ… (Egdall has) a considerable talent for explaining erudite concepts to the lay reader in clear and concise writing . . . (Egdall) may be the next Asimov or Sagan.
Dr. James R. Webb, astrophysics professor and director of the SARA Observatory, says:
“I find the book extremely well written . . . I love the way Egdall interweaves the history and personality of the scientists with the actual science, without losing track of the main points. I am impressed with the scope and breadth of the manuscript. Having read many books on relativity, from advanced texts to accessible descriptions . . . I find this book is one of the most complete survey books I have seen. If you only read one book on special and general relativity, this is the one to read.”
Egdall is available for interviews and appearances.
