    I've written an open-source book on special relativity: http://www.lightandmatter.com/sr/ . It's a work in progress, but at this point it's fairly complete in its coverage of topics, and I would welcome feedback. "Open-source" means that the LaTeX source code is available, and it's under the same license as Wikipedia.

    @bcrowell: Let me be the first to thank you for your hard work and generosity in making this book available to all of us. On occasions when I have referred to it, I have always found it technically competent and nicely illustrated. Nice work! :thumbs:

    Thanks! :-) But maybe you're thinking of the GR book...? The SR book is new.
