- Simplicity: the book teaches space and time in relativity in a physical fashion with minimal mathematics- Conciseness: the book teaches relativity by emphasizing the basic simplicity of the principles at work- Visualization: space-time diagrams (Minkowski) illustrate phenomena from simultaneity to the resolution of the twin paradox in a concrete fashion- Worked problems: two chapters of challenging problems solved in several ways illustrate and teach the principles- Problem sets: each chapter is accompanied by a full set of problems for the student that teach the principles and some new phenonmena

John Benjamin Kogut, PhD, is an American theoretical physicist, specializing in high energy physics. He has contributed to the quark-parton model, light-cone quantization, quark confinement, lattice gauge theory, Quantum Chromodynamics (the field theory of quarks and gluons) in extreme environments (high temperatures and densities), and supercomputer simulations as a tool for theoretical physics. For 27 years Dr. Kogut was on the physics faculty of the Loomis Laboratory at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, retiring in 2005 as professor emeritus.
