    Of course, we would appreciate your participation once your requested book listing is up :smile:

    To save us some work, please delete the ones that are already listed, e.g. Griffiths electrodynamics.

    [Thanks! We'll probably delete others ourselves as we add them, or add a comment that they've been added.]

    How about Anthony Zee's new book: Einstein Gravity In A Nutshell?

    I just started to work through this a few days ago and was surprised to see that it wasn't already listed here!

    Same here, I just started reading it too. So far it's been really, really awesome plus it has solutions to a good number of the exercises and it's very rigorous as far as differential geometry goes. It feels like a much more modern, compactified version of MTW. The only thing I dislike is that the author constantly switches between ##\nabla_{\mu}## and ##;\mu## for the covariant derivative operator but that's just a minor thing.
