Gut erklärter Einstieg
- Bewertet: Format: eBook (ePUB)
Allgemein gut erklärter Einstieg in die vielfältige Materie der Relativitätstheorie. Leider ist es genau dann leicht enttäuschend, wenn man anfängt alles zu verstehen, wenn wieder Abkürzungen genommen werden oder Theorien als gesetzt vermittelt werden. Würde ich trotzdem jederzeit wieder kaufen.
