I really enjoyed the way Lightman used short stories for each of Einstein's theories. A lot of Einstein's theories are very abstract and obscure, but this book does a very good job in explaining each theory with hypothetical stories. I have never learned about Einstein's theories in depth, so it really gave me some idea of theories that Einstein has formulated. The plot of each story is in no way related, which sort of takes away from the whole book. Also, some of the information is no way detailed or accurate, but it does provide a basic understanding of the theories. I would recommend this book for its information rather than the plot, as the plot is underdeveloped.
