MEDIA REVIEWS

"A clever blend that makes relativity easier to think about—even if you're no Einstein."—StarDate, University of Texas"A fairly comprehensive look at the subject of relativity, with most of the major topics covered. At the end of the book, the reader should have a fairly good grasp of the science of relativity."—About.com, Physics"The Manga Guides definitely have a place on my bookshelf."—Sarah Zielinski, "Surprising Science," Smithsonian Magazine"My daughter read this book and when I asked her about it, she said the story was good and was intrigued to find that general relativity was special and special relativity was general. That's as good an endorsement as you can get."—Science 2.0"The latest volume in the Manga Guide series explaining math and science with comics is the best yet!"—Johanna Draper Carlson, Comics Worth Reading"If you were at all interested in the weird world of relativity, but thought you could not understand the concepts, try this book. Its unique approach can help you understand."—Jonathan DuHamel, TucsonCitizen.com"I was really impressed how the concepts of relativity are explained with clarity. You really can learn more about a topic like relativity with a comic book like this."—Jeremy Schultz, Designorati"I would say the book is a success and recommend it without reservation."—Matthew Helmke"Those who are interested in learning and want a foundation from which to launch further studies will be well served by this book."—AstroNerdBoy, AstroNerdBoy's Anime & Manga Blog
