Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Most Incomprehensible Thing: Notes Towards a Very Gentle Introduction to the Mathematics of Relativity (Kindle Edition)
One of the best expositions of the topic I have ever read. Whilst I am coming to terms with much of the mathematics, I feel that with a little more re-reading I am beginning to see fundamental concepts falling into place. I have never really gotten my head around tensors, until now. I can now begin to appreciate how beautiful Einstein's general theory of relativity truly is. I have studied courses on special relativity and I too thought, as the author did, was nothing too difficult. There are many books that attempt to explain the topic but These always steered away from the maths, an I was always left wanting to know more. When I read the sample chapter for this book I was convinced that this was the book I was always looking for. You will not be disappointed in purchasing this book if you want this deeper understanding.
