A Book that Clearly Explains Special Relativity w / Tensors?

  1. Dec 11, 2014 #1
    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?

    One of those actually helped.

    Thanks,
