Editorial Reviews

Review

"Journey into Gravity and Spacetime is a colorful and imaginative introduction to a topical subject, delightfully produced. Wheeler complements his subject by continually demonstrating its underlying simplicity, in the face of the apparent magnitude of the task. I recommend this book to anyone wishing to gain an honest insight into the wonders of gravity and the physics of spacetime." -- Times Higher Education Supplement

"A thorough exploration of Einstein's geometric theory of gravity and its implications for the relationship between mass and spacetime." --
Nature

"I am reading Wheeler so that I can write more intelligently about Einstein's general theory of relativity." --
Isaac Asimov, Night Table Reading, Vanity Fair

"Wheeler takes the reader into a world of space-time, gravitational waves, and black holes. As one of the foremost contributors to the study of relativity, and as the person mainly responsible for the resurgence of interest in general relativity in the 1960s, he is well qualified to write such a book. . . . Strongly recommended." --
