A No-Nonsense Introduction to General Relativity
by


Number of pages: 24

Description:
General relativity has a reputation of being extremely difficult. This introduction is a very pragmatic affair, intended to give you some immediate feel for the language of General Relativity. It does not substitute for a deep understanding -- that takes more work.
