Abstract

THE stream continues. Here are seven more books on relativity. It is difficult to know where to begin in commenting on such a collection. Mr. Reade's perhaps may be dismissed with a word; it ought not to have been written. Mr. Dingle's, on the other hand, is a serious little book by one who has caught the spirit of the matter. Within the limits of seventy small pages, without any mathematical symbols. he has done as well as can be expected in suggesting the various strains of thought that go to the making up of the theory. It is neither extravagant nor childish; it gives enough and not too much emphasis to illustrative analogies. The reader of this account may be assured that he is not being misled.
