Relativity in a Nutshell: Albert Einstein

I don't know if Dr. Einstein would have written a Nutshell book if he were around nowadays, but I do know that my favorite audio company, The Teaching Company, is commemorating the 100th Anniversary of Albert Einstein's birth by offering two free physics lectures for the downloading, one on "Einstein's Miracle Year" and the other "Relativity in a Nutshell".

Mini bio: Albert Einstein (March 14, 1879 – April 18, 1955) was a Jewish theoretical physicist who is widely regarded as the greatest scientist of the 20th century. He proposed the theory of relativity and also made major contributions to the development of quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and cosmology. He was awarded the 1921 Nobel Prize for Physics for his explanation of the photoelectric effect and "for his services to Theoretical Physics".
