Special Relativity

Before delving into general relativity in a more technical way, one must get up to speed on special relativity. Here are two excellent texts for this:

Introduction to Special Relativity, W. Rindler (Oxford University Press, Oxford, 1991).

Spacetime Physics: Introduction to Special Relativity, E. F. Taylor and J. A. Wheeler (W. H. Freeman, New York, 1992).
