Format: Paperback
This wonderful book has long been available online, but I'm delighted to see that the author has chosen to publish it in physical form. This is the kind of book you really want to be able to flip through and fill with marginalia. I've been reading through it about once a year, and each time I find myself understanding it a little better. The author has a great gift for presenting challenging material in a way that remains accessible to those of us who haven't made it past calculus. Equal parts history, philosophy of science, and physics textbook, it's an absolute treasure, and I'm delighted to finally be able to give the author some money.

Although I'd previously read Brown's selfsame book published online (go to http://www.mathpages.com/rr/rrtoc.htm), I wanted a more convenient version, so bought the book. It's truly amazing -- not only does the book have pretty much all you'd want to know about special and general relativity, it includes many historical, philosophical and even poetic references regarding these subjects.

There are only a few truly worthwhile and comprehensive references on relativity available today; Zee's "Einstein Gravity in a Nutshell" is probably the best (available on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_0_16?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=einstein%20gravity%20in%20a%20nutshell&sprefix=einstein+gravity%2Caps%2C172), along with Brown's text. Either will make you articulate in a subject that arguably represents the pinnacle of the human mind.

Only one warning -- the details of Brown's text can be very mathematical, so you'd better be prepared, at least at the undergraduate science or engineering level.
