Time travel in Einstein's Universe

That's the name of the book I am currently reading. I am presently midway through the book and completely amazed by it's readbility and the lucidity of the explanations. Some of the best thought experiments and analogies have been used to explain the topics.

One of the illustrations I liked best (as of now) are on pages 44-51. They deal with explaining the slowing of clocks with increasing speed and how the seemingly different observations at different speeds using light beams add up to the same result for the speed of light.

I have read quite a bit of material on various aspects of Cosmology and this book is one among the best. Highly recommended:
