The author is a world class scholar, and he gives a very comprehensive introduction to relativity, both special and general. Consequently, every serious student will be forced to purchase this book and study it thoroughly and quite carefully. As churlish as it may sound, I expect more from a world class scholar, teamed with one of the top technical publishers in the world.

The books basic purpose is to make relativity come alive conceptually.

In conference after conference the view is expressed that cosmology today is where particle physics was forty years ago, with major discoveries just waiting to happen. Also gravitational wave detectors, presently under construction or in the testing phase, promise to open up an entirely novel field of physics. The books basic purpose is to make relativity come alive conceptually. Hence the emphasis on the foundations and the logical subtleties rather than on the mathematics or the detailed experiments per se.

For special relativity, the easy book of Taylor and Wheeler is probably better (although maybe a little cheesy). If you are really interested in understanding the modern importance of General Relativity, you will not be disappointed. Everyone will need to read Rindler at some stage. Personally, I think it better to leave it as a "have to read"--like it or not. It's aggravatingly unclear in important points. Professor Rindler and his wife, Linda, are two of the most generous people I had the privilege to know. When I was a graduate student, they were ever so kind and helpful.

Wolfgang Rindler (18 May 1924 – 8 February 2019) was a physicist working in the field of General Relativity where he is known for introducing the term "event horizon", Rindler coordinates, and (in collaboration with Roger Penrose) for popularizing the use of spinors in general relativity. An honorary member of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and foreign member of the Accademia delle Scienze di Torino, he was also a prolific textbook author.

I have always felt much sym pathy with Richard Courant's maxim (as reported and exemplified by Pascual Jordan) that, ideally, proofs should be reached by comprehension rather than computation.

Roughly equal coverage is given tospecial relativity, general relativity, and cosmology. Special relativity escapes this tag with a ven geance, and tends to be taught as a pure service discipline, with too little emphasis on its startling ideas. With many judicious omissions it can be taught in one semester, but it would better serve as the basis of a year's work. What better time, there fore, to enjoy these subjects for their own sake than as an und- v vi PREFACE graduate?
