I'm reading chapter 7 of Goldstein Classical Mechanics (the special relativity part)
I'm planning to take a deep(very deep!!) study on Relativity(Both Special and General Theory) after finishing chapter 7 of Goldstein.
Which textbooks will you recommend?
If you could give me a suggestion with reason, it would help me a lot! Thank you!:smile:


Also, I have only a little knowledge on Electrodynamics(like Maxwell equation, Some Electromagnetic theory)
Will it affect my study on relativity?

You can learn special relativity without knowledge of electrodynamics. However, before jumping to general relativity, some knowledge of electrodynamics would be very useful.
