"This book is considered the Bible for everyone in the field of gravitation."--Alberto Vecchio, University of Birmingham "Gravitation has been a very influential book in the field, and it gives a remarkably thorough treatment of what's relevant in general relativity today."--Frans Pretorius, Princeton University "Gravitation is the encyclopedic, definitive exposition of general relativity as of 1970. Any serious researcher of general relativity will want to have this book at hand."--Andrew Hamilton, University of Colorado, Boulder "Gravitation is a classic."--David Spergel, Princeton University Kip S. Thorne, Co-Winner of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics
