This book on general relativity presents first a careful introduction to special relativity on a geometric ground (first 80 pages), and contains a lot of details. The next 100 pages deal with curved spacetime and gravity on a much higher level. In an unusual manner, manifolds are defined by smooth curves. The main part is devoted to the geometry of black holes and the character of singularities. Especially, the Schwarzschild and the Kerr black holes are analyzed. The last 20 pages are devoted to cosmology, and are of a more physical character, and they are restricted to isotropic Friedmann models. The temperature of the cosmic background radiation is calculated more carefully than other textbooks do. (Zentralblatt)
