Summary
This latest offering in No Starch Press's highly acclaimed EduManga series, The Manga Guide to Relativity, uses Japanese comics, clear explanations, and a charming storyline to gently introduce you to relativity. The book follows the plight of student body president Minagi, who's been sentenced to advanced physics summer school by his creepy principal. Fortunately, Minagi has the gorgeous Miss Uraga to teach him everything. The Manga Guide to Relativity begins with an overview of classical Newtonian physics before delving into Einstein's greatest discoveries. You'll learn why relativity is fundamental to understanding modern physics, how the Pythagorean theorem can explain time dilation, how to understand inertial frames of reference, how motion can affect an object's mass and length, and even how gravity can bend light. The book also explores the difference between general and special relativity, the equivalence principle, and the relationship between energy and mass, among other related topics. This EduManga title is co-published with Ohmsha, Ltd. of Tokyo, Japan, and is one in a series of translations from Ohmsha's bestselling Japanese originals
