Reviews

'... the best book on contemporary gravitational physics for beginning graduate students to established researchers. It will remain one of the leading textbooks on gravity for years to come.' Renata Kallosh, Stanford University, California
'Carroll brings a relaxed authority to the teaching of general relativity at the graduate level. The text is beautifully written and succeeds in linking modern mathematical formalism to physical applications.' Roger Blandford, Stanford University, California
'This book is a gem. Carroll's course at Massachusetts Institute of Technology remains legendary and this book can be expected to spread the legend worldwide. Carroll give a clear, well-motivated, and lively development of general relativity.' Alan Guth, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
'An excellent graduate text in general relativity written with an informal yet sophisticated style. It provides an efficient introduction to the gravitational physics essential for today's understanding of black holes, gravitational waves, and the universe.' Jim Hartle, University of California, Santa Barbara
