Item Name & Description: a signed copy of How to Teach Relativity to Your Dog by Chad Orzel.
This pop science book explains special and general relativity through imaginary conversations with the author's dog Emmy, which are followed by human-oriented explanations. Booklist said, "With canine humor and math- or physics-related jokes, Orzel keeps readers interested, while teaching the elements of physics that we promptly forgot after we took the test"; Kirkus said that the central concept of relativity "sounds trivial but leads to weird if delightfully comprehensible phenomena, provided someone like Orzel delivers a clear explanation of why."
This will be released in trade paperback on February 28, 2012.
Starting Bid: $5.
