Since I've read this book, I've read a few other books on relativity, and this is by far the best book. I highly recommend it to everyone, since relativity is an ill understood topic that everyone should really know about.
I thought the manga format of this story was wonderful, as it quickly takes us into space, and quickly back to Earth. This illustrates some otherwise difficult concepts that are hard to visualize without jumping out into space, and then coming quickly back to Earth to apply them. Even though it's manga, it has a lot of pages of technical details, so this book has some good content, and isn't just a quick read.

-The technical details in the fine-print pages take a long time to read
-Spends almost all of the time on specific relativity, and skims over general relativity
