5.0 out of 5 stars A great master explains his view of gravitation, 19 Aug 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Gravitation and Cosmology: Principles and Applications of the General Theory of Relativity (Hardcover)
Of course this is a great book. You can start at the first page and proceed right to the last without discontinuities, in an orderly, organized way. You will then have learned a huge amount of the gravity lore, physically oriented, as opposed to mathematically. Also, you'll have tensor calculus at your feet, in the traditional formulation, the one that Einstein used, as well as most of us. Once you have the great picture, you could learn Cartan mathematics, which greatly reduces calculation times. For this, Wheeler's "Gravitation" is recommended. Follow this sequence, by all means. Not the opposite!

5.0 out of 5 stars an excellent point of view on gravitation and astrophysics, 27 July 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Gravitation and Cosmology: Principles and Applications of the General Theory of Relativity (Hardcover)
If there's anyone who's skilled in basic physical perspectives, and analytics. I strongly recommend to read this book as a guiding light to the Einstein's general relativity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Misner's Gravitation, 26 Jun 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Gravitation and Cosmology: Principles and Applications of the General Theory of Relativity (Hardcover)
This is a good book from two points of view. First, it has a whole account in cosmology. Also, it discusses many experimental support. On the other hand, it suffers of an old-fashioned annoying tensorial notation.
