Recommended: the 2nd Edition of "Einstein's Relativity and the Quantum Revolution"

Available on DVD from The Great Courses, Einstein's Relativity and the Quantum Revolution, 2nd Edition is a rewarding lecture series. Professor Richard Wolfson carefully, logically and chronologically explains advances in physics, in layman's terms, from the Greeks all the way to the Higgs Boson. The four-DVD set of 24 half-hour lectures comes with a book that features all the charts and diagrams used in the series.

After watching the series, I have a better grasp of the concepts covered. These include: the nature of eletromagnetic waves, the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum physics, the general theory of relativity and the nature of spacetime.
