Hi everybody: does anyone know of a good book on special relativity that takes a geometric approach? I'm doing research that requires that I know special relativity, and, while working problems out for personal-practice, all I do is either:

1) make gamma-messes
2) clumsily-use invariants, make cross-terms, run into walls...

Special relativity is something that just escapes me, for some reason. I can do problems at the level of Thornton/Rex's "Modern Physics" quite fine, but when I try Griffiths "Intro...Elementary Particles" chapter 3, I flounder for some strange reason. I decided, then, that it might be best to look into a more intuitive and geometric approach to problem-solving in special relativity: any ideas?
