Relativity Opinions on Zee's "Einstein Gravity in a Nutshell"

  1. Jun 24, 2016 #1
    Hello again,
    I would like to know what your opinions about this book. As I have figured out, there are a lot of great GR books out there, but this very rarely gets any mention in forums like this. Why is this? Its got pretty good reviews at amazon and goodreads.
    Thanks in advance!

    How
    How does it compare with other GR books like Carroll's or Hartle's or Schutz's?

    I haven't used those textbooks enough to comment on them, but I can say Zee's is in a higher level compared to Hartle's. Compared to Carroll's and Schutz's, I think they're roughly at the same level but Zee's has some exceptional features in terms of pedagogy.
