    Is the book General Relativity by Hobson, Lasenby and Efstathiou good in the sense that is intuitive on the mathematics AND physics that it presents? Please vote and if you could also comment your opinion it would be much appreciated.

    hasn't anybody used it?

    Of course people have used it, but your post does't really invite helpful results. You neglect to tell us your background, or anything else for that matter. How are we then supposed to figure out whether this book is a good fit for you?

    I am just asking for general opinions. If it's well-written, intuitive, gives good explanations etc.
    But if you need some background, I intend to enroll in my first GR course and I have the necessary background than an undergraduate student needs to tackle a first undergrad course in GR. I hope this helps and sorry if I was inaccurate.
