Notes:
"Although it accompanies the television film of the same title ('Einstein's Universe,' marking the centenary of Albert Einstein's birth, made by BBC-TV as a coproduction with WGBH (Boston)), this book is separately conceived and written, to convey the ideas and experiments in printed words rather than with moving pictures."--Author's Note.
