usually, physics math textbooks give me giant yawns, but this one is definitely exceptional, I enjoyed reading it a lot thank god Bernard Schutz skips all that torturous index gymnastics of differential geometry and jumps straight into special and general relativity where half of the quantities in diff geom happily die and leave us in peace his introduction to tensor calculus is very helpful lots of clear explanations, for example why mutual length contraction or time dilation is not a contradic [...]

Probably not a good textbook as it is advertised but a good reference and guide for physical clarity and intuition Builds from SR to GR step by step.

A really good book I recommend this book for everyone who want to know how genius Einstein was By the structure point of view, this book is spot on It starts with mathematical tools to work with a curved space like vectors, one forms, dual space, and tensor algebra Then it proceeds to the redshift experiment and the importance of curved space by introducing Riemann tensor with Ricci and Einstein tensor afterwards.Fun things start to happen when one start to work with physics in curved space Grav [...]

Very good book to start general relativity The first four chapters carefully work out the necessary mathematics, in geometric forms than just emphasizing transformation rules The fluid analogy was especially helpful for understanding stress energy tensor which is the source of gravitational field.The next four chapters brought the readers to the real essence of general relativity the physics and mathematics of curvature itself Somehow he managed to bring out the flavour really clearly While the [...]

Yeah, I read this book not for a class or anything but just for fun and to build some general knowledge I liked it it wasn t a textbook, but it just built up the concepts and was pretty interesting I really enjoyed reading it I m sure a lot of it went over my head but I did understand some of it and it was cool to read

As the title indicates, a handy introduction to GR A grasp of high school mechanics, college level calculus and linear algebra is all that you need to start digging into this book The books starts with a refresher chapter on SR with importance laid on the geometric construct of SR rather than the analytic way that is read in high school Few chapters familiarizes the reader with 4 vector concepts before delving into the equivalence principle that forms the core of GR Non euclidean geometry is int [...]

I said a while back that Shankar s Principles of Quantum Mechanics was the best textbook I ever used, I want to amend that and put this on top Very clear and extremely interesting But manageable exercises Although he assumes nothing beyond vector calculus and linear algebra, I can t help but come to the conclusion that I would have had a lot harder time had I no differential geometry background.Highly recommended Edit 2016 I really liked this book as an introduction to SR GR and definitely still [...]

This was our textbook in a course on General Relativity and Cosmology taught by Professor Chien at the University of Minnesota in the early 2000s Love it My first exposure to GR in modern notation I first borrowed a copy from the old British Council Library in New Manila when I was in highschool Good times.

The problems weren t that great They were mostly just asking you to explore derivations in the text fully rather than asking interesting questions about the material I didn t find his explanations very clear either, although in class we used a different notation so that s probably the source of that issue.

very good introduction to general relativity, i think the introduction to tensors is especially great i didn t read very much on gravitational radiation, and some of the later chapters were not as good as the earlier ones but overall, very good and though i don t have the most qualified opinion, i think it prepares you pretty well for MTW if you re into that.

Too dense.

Easy to read undergrad level introduction to general relativity with a review of special relativity.

Well written from a mathematics viewpoint Not 100% application but still a good text Chapter 6 on Curved Manifolds was my favorite.

Dude, I know everyone makes typos, but in complex physical theories the difference between a 1 and a 0 or a and a can be kind of significant.

The best introductory text on the subject that exists One of the best texts I ve ever read.
Bernard Schutz Is a wellknown author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in theA First Course in General Relativity book, this is one of the most wanted Bernard Schutz author readers around the world.
