When the formulas are images they may appear to small to be read. You need to click and view the image in a separate scrren, and that is a blurred scan of the book, sometimes unreadable. All stanalone formulas are images suffering the same problem.
An expensive book great book, made virtually unreadable by a lazy electronic adaptation.
The Kindle edition of Wald's textbook has some issues with symbols both in text and in equations. These typos are so blatant that they will never actually cause confusion (say, a "@" instead of a partial derivative sign, or a "$" where there should be an "f") but these errors are rather distracting.
I love this book, but I am not fond of this edition.
GR by Wald is absolutely excellent book for a grad student. It firmly establishes many elements and fundamentals of the theory with solid reasoning and mathematics.
Note though that a bit of knowledge of sets and manifolds may be good to have beforehand (only a bit). I would suggest the first few chapters of Bishop & Goldberg 'Tensor Analysis on Manifolds'. Excellent text. Or the first 60 or so pages of Hawking & Ellis 'The large scale structure of space-time".
As an additional note, Wald's text is somewhere in between Hawking & Ellis and Carrol's intro book regarding 'difficulty'. Probably leans a bit closer to Hawking & Ellis in that regard.
