**The Mathematical Theory of Relativity**

by Arthur Stanley Eddington

**Publisher**: Cambridge University Press 1923**Number of pages**: 448

**Description**:

Sir Arthur Eddington here formulates mathematically his conception of the world of physics derived from the theory of relativity. The argument is developed in a form which throws light on the origin and significance of the great laws of physics; its consequences are followed to the full extent in the consideration of gravitation, relativity, mechanics, space-time, electromagnetic phenomena and world geometry.

**A No-Nonsense Introduction to General Relativity**

by

**Sean M. Carroll**

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 GR. It does not substitute for a deep understanding -- that takes more work.
