    Well, O'Neil has two books I am aware of. One of them is a physics book: The Geometry of Kerr Black Holes.

    I like that one too. I meant the semi-riemaniann geometry one.

    Misner, Thorne, and Wheeler's Gravitation was mentioned earlier in the thread. I'd like to point out that it's being reprinted in hardcover, and will be available on the 9th of this month, this coming Monday:

    Good timing, just after one of the authors got the Nobel prize. Remarkably, another book by that Nobel prize winner has been published a couple of weeks ago. Is it just a coincidence, or did publishers count on it that he could get the Nobel?

    Since they're both textbooks, I think it's probably a coincidence.

    If a publisher wanted to cash in, they'd make an inexpensive popular science book. Thorne hasn't published one of those since 2014.

    Even better, I guess they now will bring out more DVDs etc. of the movie "Interstellar" as "adviced and produced by a Nobel Laureate" :-)).
