"General Relativity is written clearly... gives a good, readable introduction to the foundations and applications of general relativity theory, and it is a good choice for a general relativity course emphasizing astrophysical and cosmological applications."
Lawrence H. Ford, Tufts University for Physics Today
"Like any good book on general relativity, much is expected of the reader, but the writing is concise and elegant, with plenty of good exercises for the student to work on. The authors strike an excellent balance between the demands of mathematical rigor and physical significance."
Alan S.McRae, Mathematical Reviews
This is a clear mathematical introduction to Einstein's theory of general relativity. It presents a wide range of applications of the theory, concentrating on its physical consequences. After reviewing the basic concepts, the authors present an intuitive discussion of the mathematical background, which is then used to develop a physical understanding of a wide range of topics in relativistic gravitation. Written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, this approachable textbook contains over 300 exercises to illuminate and extend the discussion in the text.
