Categorization is odious. There is tremendous overlap among genres. These pigeonholes are offered only as a convenience.

The Cults of Relativity Finding Einstein, Twain and a Universe Beyond E = mc2, presents us with a whole new view of our universe and challenges everything we have learned in the past. For anyone wishing to have the Theory of Relativity explained with a down-to-earth, honest approach this could be the book for you. As a warm-up for appreciating Relativity, the first chapter of Cults will show you why Mark Twain and Albert Einstein mistrusted statistics. You will leave this chapter understanding the Twain and Einstein mindset, and why statistics cause havoc with government policies and medicine. Under the guidance of Albert Einstein and with the help of Mark Twain, Cults goes on to explain parallel universes, the warping of time, and many other aspects of Relativity. Finally, Cults jumps deep into the new discovery of dark energy, and explains why dark energy is so confounding for so many scientists.

A direct quote from this captivating book seems to sum it up: A novice might grasp what experts believe is unattainable.
