The Landscape of Theoretical Physics
by Matej Pavsic
Publisher: arXiv 2006
Number of pages: 386
This a book is for those who would like to learn something about special and general relativity beyond the usual textbooks, about quantum field theory, the elegant Fock-Schwinger-Stueckelberg proper time formalism, the elegant description of geometry by means of Clifford algebra, about the fascinating possibilities the latter algebra offers in reformulating the existing physical theories, and quantizing them in a natural way.

This is an elementary introduction to the Theory of Relativity. The intended audience is a class of nonscience undergraduates. Our plan is to follow a pseudo-historical development of how we came to understand the spacetime of General Relativity.
by Ruslan Sharipov - Samizdat Press
A regular, smooth, and logically consistent introduction to the subject starting with basic facts like Coulomb law and ending with Einstein's theory of gravitation. A book for mathematics students, references to physical intuition are minimized.

Which geometries on a smooth manifold can serve as a spacetime structure? This question is comprehensively addressed from first principles, exploring the kinematics and gravitational dynamics of all tensorial geometries on a smooth manifold.
by Albert Einstein - Methuen & Co Ltd
How better to learn the Special Theory of Relativity and the General Theory of Relativity than directly from their creator, Albert Einstein himself? Einstein describes the theories that made him famous, illuminating his case with numerous examples.
