Elementary introduction pays special attention to aspects of tensor calculus and relativity that students find most difficult. Contents include tensors in curved spaces and application to general relativity theory; black holes; gravitational waves; application of general relativity principles to cosmology.

This elementary introduction pays special attention to aspects of tensor calculus and relativity that students tend to find most difficult. Its use of relatively unsophisticated mathematics in the early chapters allows readers to develop their confidence within the framework of Cartesian coordinates before undertaking the theory of tensors in curved spaces and its application to general relativity theory. Additional topics include black holes, gravitational waves, and a sound background in applying the principles of general relativity to cosmology

If you're serious about learning (general & special) relativity, this is probably one of the most pedagogical books out there. Very few (and small) steps or explanations missing. Concise and to the point. It covers the basics so you'll be able to pick other GR books later on to learn what you need. I really like teaching one-semester courses with it.

This book provides a good introduction to the basics of both the special and the general Theory of Relativity. I do not, however, like its style entirely. It is a little dated, too. For example, for the special part of the theory, the author sticks to Cartesian tensors only, which is advantageous only from the vantage of a student interested in... Special Relativity! This wastes time; moreover, I regard the choice of x_4 = ict unfortunate. Finally, despite the book being only 205 pages long and covering a reasonable amount of basic stuff, the style is wordy.

Study elsewhere (the book by D'Inverno is OK, the ones by Schutz and Wald rock), and if you feel the need for practice with some elementary point, go for the exercises in this book.

As a writer and philosopher I have tried to get a genuine scientific understanding of topics like quantum physics and relativity. Treatments tend to be either over-simplified (no math) or presume you are very competent at graduate-level math. My past efforts have raised my math competence to the point where this book, for me, is at a near-perfect level. I found the explanation and use of tensors tied to physics in a way that helped me with both subjects.

I was also pleased with the treatment of general relativity. Many books give good accounts of special relativity, but this is the best presentation of general relativity that includes the mathematics involved.

I would recommend this to anyone who is willing to do the math. But without at least a basic understanding of vectors and partial derivatives, you will not be able to follow the text.

I'm really impressed with the clarity of the material.

I've worked through 21 problems in chapter 2, and the answers to the exercies do not have a single mistake in them yet.

The publisher will also email you a .pdf file of all of the chapter problems worked out in detail. I've found the solutions to the problems to be a good supplement to the text itself.

I would buy other titles from this author and publisher.

Although the book is requiring me to do an extensive review of vector calculus, I'm learning things I did not catch when I took the course. The book answers many of the questions that I have asked over the years; I am sure after reviewing vector fields I will continue to the book and have a much better understanding of how to apply tensors in various fields of Physics!!!
Hi_Jacker
The book covers the subject nicely and is a great addition to our library.

Good
i only got to special relativity section. Maybe okay for mathematicians, but assumptions not clearly stated and not physically motivated. I went back to old E&M book to review special. I'll probably come back to this later.
