"Exceptionally clear and comprehensive, this engrossing volume will be extremely useful to students. Most introductions to space-time and relativity are written by physicists, but readers interested in a careful examination of the philosophical foundations of the subject are much better served by starting here. I had fun reading this book."--Sean Carroll, author of From Eternity to Here: The Quest for the Ultimate Theory of Time
"Maudlin adroitly guides readers through the mathematical, physical, and philosophical subtleties of Newtonian physics and special and general relativity. The book is filled with lucid and original observations, and succeeds in presenting material that was previously only accessible to those who could stomach significant amounts of differential geometry. A major contribution."--David Wallace, University of Oxford
This is a great book and I received it on time however the front and back covers were very badly bent. The product I received was of much less quality than the product I ordered.Published 18 days ago by Mike
I'm a physics graduate student. I would *like* to believe that I really understand Newtonian physics and Special Relativity (unfortunately, I never studied General Relativity... Read morePublished 4 months ago by Godshatter
This is certainly not a book for the physics novice. You got to at least possess a degree in physics and gain a good understanding of the Special and General Relativity (by reading... Read morePublished 5 months ago by Suncake58
I bought this book because of the sort of endorsement by S.Carroll and R.Wald, whose books on General Relativity are excellent. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Ciccio
This is an excellent introduction to the philosophy of space and time. It carefully goes through the ideas from Aristotle, to Galileo to Newton and finally from Minkowski spacetime... Read morePublished 8 months ago by NC
This book is an interesting mind trip. Maudlin starts us at the base problem - the problem of absolute space and absolute motion, Newton's affirmative position on this... Read morePublished 9 months ago by Stephen E. Robbins
As a progressive rock band, Gentle Giant was always a bit different. Avoiding the virtuoso-hero ideals and overblown symphonic textures of their contemporaries, GG blended... Read morePublished 11 months ago by Zorbo
I appreciate Maudlin's books because he cuts to the heart of confusing issues in physics and draws clear distinctions that improve understanding greatly. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Robert S. Cruikshank Jr.
