Great introduction, incredibly comprehensive text. One of the reviews states that only slight understanding of maths is required, but I disagree. Differential geometry and tensor calculus is precursor, and one that isn't particularly developed in this book. Although not a major hindrance to the bulk of content, a firm grasp of general relativity cannot be attained without a comprehensive understanding of tensor calculus.
