The Fourth Dimension toward a Geometry of Higher Reality (Dover Books on Science) (Reprint) [Paperback]
A long-expected reprint of the wonderful overview of relativity and our knowledge of the nature of the geometry of space-time from the incomparable Rudy Rucker--mathematician, and one of the originators of cyberpunk movement in science fiction, who also happens to have a wicked sense of humor and a knack for explaining far-out concepts in physics, cosmology and mathematics. Originally published in 1984, it is perhaps a little dated, but on the whole has aged quite gracefully: after all, it deals primarily with the geometrical concepts rather than physical ones. From Flatland to our four-dimensional space-time, Rucker develops the concepts with side-splitting wit, tickling our sense of wonder and providing plenty of hilarious illustrations to spice up the narrative. This wonderful intellectual adventure should be on the reading list of anyone interested in modern physics in general and the theory of relativity in particular. A foreword by the great Martin Gardner adds the icing to the cake. And, being a Dover edition, it is well within the means of, well, anybody.
