"Written by a quantum physicist, this board book relies on simple drawings featuring a ball to explain the concept of general relativity. While the book is part of Baby University, a series for little ones, it certainly helped me, an adult long finished with formal education, to understand mass, warp, and space in a way that I never could before. I wish I'd had this book when I was struggling with the idea of black holes back in my college astronomy class. Although I still find black holes fascinating, at least now I have a little more idea about how they come to exist and will be better able to relate to science fiction books and films much better. This is a cool idea for a series since it introduces complex ideas in an accessible way. Kudos to the author and the publisher for this much-needed product. Elementary science classrooms will never be the same again. " said.

" This rocks. I mean I'm totally buying this for any kids of my friends. Especially Leah, because she is wicked smart. You want a book where you learn something while you read it over and over again to your baby? BUY THIS BOOK. " said.

" Ok, so I wasn’t smart enough to understand “General Relativity.” I bet there are babies out there who would appreciate it, though! " said.

"After my previous realization that physics is hard, I needed to go back to basics with physics so easy that even a baby could understand it. And here was General Relativity for Babies up for review on Netgalley, so I grabbed my copy and well, it's a board book (ages zero and up the back tells me) with the very basics of general relativity laid out (flat space, curved space, mass curves space, lots of mass in small place = black hole, etc.) The book ends with Now you know General Relativity! Do I? I already knew all of what the book defined. Cambridge University physics books hurt my brain and Baby University books are too simple. My pursuit of physics knowledge leaves me like Goldlilocks -- nothing is just right (okay, except it ends up that things are just right for Goldlilocks, who eats the porridge and falls asleep in the bed, and then gets eaten by bears, I think. I can't remember the ending, probably because my mind is filled with physics.)

It would be a cute book for the babies of scientists. I would have liked reading it when Tesfa was teeny. If they ever need someone to write Galois Theory for Babies, I'd totally do it. I love Galois Theory.

General Relativity for Babies by Chris Ferrie went on sale May 2nd, 2017.

I received a copy free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

" Note: I received a digital review copy through NetGalley. " said.

" This is a fun idea to appeal to parents of little ones, though the book is made for children. The simple illustrations will appeal to babies. This would be a good gift for new parents who love science. I admit that even with the childlike explanation of relativity, I was still confused!I received an ARC from NetGalley. " said.

" great book I think is more geared towards the science loving parents more than the baby. It is simple with simple illustrations so your baby will enjoy it.I received a copy from netgalley. " said.

"This book does what it says on the tin. It explains general erlativity for everyone, but since it is a board book, it is for babies.

This is no Goodnight Moon. This is not something you will read to your kid over and over again. Think of it more as a Go the F**k to Sleep" sort of book, one more for the parents than for the kids. Think of it as a pet rock of the the board books. It is cute, it is well done, it says what it is going to do, and apparently this is not the first one he has written.

So, recommend tho those who want a pet rock, I mean a board book about general relativity. I have rated it four stars because it does explain general relativity very well. And it is a cute book.

Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review
