Main Question or Discussion Point

My professor gave us a book that is still in production to use for special relativity. I am having a hard time grasping the notation and operations with Einstein upper and lower notation.

Can anyone recommend a good textbook on this topic?

I'm not sure if it's in-depth enough or even translated to english, but I'm reading and enjoying Rumtid by Sören Holst a bit. I hope you'll get an answer by someone who's got a clue though (unlike me).
Edit: Here's a couple previous threads though, maybe they've got any?
