Interesting read, the mathematics is suggestive only, not detailed or complete, require tensors - or just wing it. First edition (2007) has many editing and typographical flaws - "os" is not a word. Also may be errors in some equations with subscripts, superscripts and accents,which can be confusing, so use a better text for the detailed math. Minor gripe, the quotation in the title, (from a German letter from A. Einstein to Vero and Bice Besso, March 21, 1935) is never actually referenced in the text.

Hardly a book for general readership in that the pages are littered with algebra. Whilst the text in each chapter starts by being user-friendly, it quickly becomes a book that would be appreciated only by a Math or Physics major.
