In my Google searchs and by reading threads on this forum I've seen that the books people most recommend on general relativity are Graviation, by Thorne, Wheeler and Misner, Wald's book and Weinberg's book. I'm in the first year to get a bachelor degree on physics and I could read any of these books at the university library. I've read a little bit of MTW, but I dont like the way it states the subjects (like, metric is a machine with two slots to which you put two vectors), I prefer something more formal, like metric is a mapping from V x V to R. I'd like to know some experiences from someone on this forum when at student years. What books did you read at that time? How did you get your knowledge on this fascinating subject? hey, I dont know if the thread tittle is appropriate, in any case please excuse my poor english.
