These ideas are the subject of the first part of the book. Hardcoverpages. I actually enjoyed the book and read it more than Carroll or Hartle’s book on general relativity. This book looks at the ideas of both Einstein and Minkowski, and spadetime introduces the theory of frames, surfaces and intrinsic geometry, developing the main implications of Einstein’s general relativity theory. Cynthia Vara rated it it was amazing Dec 20, I’ve only read the first third in detail, but so far this book is frankly disappointing.
