2.0 out of 5 stars Kills the wonder, terrible notation

2.0 out of 5 stars Kills the wonder, terrible notation, 11 Mar 2014

Einstein's theories of relativity are arguably amongst the most beautiful in science today, and yet this doesn't seem to be conveyed in Steane's book. Will it teach you relativity? Yes. Will you be inspired and filled with a sense of awe? Probably not.

Index notation isn't introduced until near the end, and is done so very unnaturally. Furthermore, Steane invents his own notation that no one else in the world seems to use, which is especially deadly if you plan to move on and study General Relativity at a later date.

I used this for my special relativity course at uni and it was brilliant. Concepts were explained clearly not just derived. ESSENTIAL.
