The book "... is perhaps a bit modest in its title: Comprehensive rather than Basic is probably more appropriate. This second edition expands upon the 2005 textbook, which is a 'Physics First' presentation of relativity and cosmology." --- Journal of General Relativity & Gravitation (2011) 43:359-360.
Review from previous edition: "This is a great time to have published a fresh new undergraduate text on relativity and cosmology...this is an excellent textbook which this reviewer would rate as the text of choice for a course on relativity and cosmology aimed at physics and astronomy
--American Journal of Physics
