Sean Carroll is an assistant professor in the Physics Department, Enrico Fermi Institute, and Center for Cosmological Physics at the University of Chicago. His research ranges over a number of topics in theoretical physics, focusing on cosmology, field theory, and gravitation. He received his Ph.D. from Harvard in 1993, and spent time as a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Theoretical Physics at MIT and the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He has been awarded fellowships from the Sloan and Packard foundations, as well as the MIT Graduate Student Council Teaching Award.

A necessary read, Carroll's book is important to read and work through, after you go through Cheng's work and Hartle. Read morePublished 15 months ago by dan mckeown
My girlfriend really wanted this book. She studies theoretical physics at Columbia University. She says this book is very very good and recommends it.Published 20 months ago by Inertiaddict
It's probably a bit too terse for an "introduction" but a bit too easy for a "second course." Somewhere in between. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Nate
