Recently, I have been getting very interested in Cosmology and I am looking for some books to expand my knowledge base. I am not a scientist and I don't have an education is physics, so it's been difficult for me to find literature that I can comprehend. Can anyone reccomend a book(s) that will help me understand the prerequisite principles of Astrophysics so I will be better equipped to delve deeper into Cosmology?
Also, my understanding of general relativity is hazy at best - how would you reccomend I go about learning more about it? Any book reccomendations for this?
Thanks in advance for all your help
