Which books are best for understanding General Relativity?

  1. May 8, 2017 #1
    I've been very interested in getting a better handle on GR since last year's announcement of
    the discovery of gravity waves by the LIGO team. The two books I've found so far are
    Gravity by James Hartle, and Gravity, From the Ground Up, by Bernard Schutz. I'm especially looking
    for material that will help me understand how Rieman's geometry is used in GR.
