Description

General Relativity for Babies by Chris Ferrie is a simple introduction to Einstein's crowning achievement. Baby will learn how mass warps space-time and how spinning black holes can send ripples of gravitational waves through space.

With Newton's laws, we can do simple things like predict where a thrown ball will land all the way to complicated things like landing a man on the moon. And now baby will know them too!

This is the first in a series of books designed to stimulate your baby and introduce them to the world of science.
