I'm afraid I was taken in by the title, which is deceptive. I'd be shocked if Einstein didn't actually know most of what is in this book. I only had my high-school chemistry, and 2 years of college physics, and I knew 90% of the facts presented in this book.
The book is well written, and the descriptions are clear and accurate. It wasn't a painful read (taking me only 4 hours or so), and I'd reccomend it to my non-technical friends, but if you have a scientific mind and even a little training, don't bother. I was hoping for some more advanced stuff - that even Einstein didn't know.
