Einstein's Dreams
by Alan Lightman

Einstein’s Dreams is a novel that explains elements of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity in a series of short vignettes. The author imagines how Einstein may have grappled with these abstract, and often counterintuitive, concepts as he refined his greatest work while provoking the imagination of the reader. There is inspiration to be gained from the realization that even ordinary minds might accomplish extraordinary feats when imagination is well cultivated.
