**General Relativity Without Calculus**

by Jose Natario

**Publisher**: Springer 2012**ISBN/ASIN**: B008CNBUNS**Number of pages**: 120

**Description**:

This book was written as a guide for a one week course aimed at exceptional students in their final years of secondary education. The course was intended to provide a quick but nontrivial introduction to Einstein's general theory of relativity, in which the beauty of the interplay between geometry and physics would be apparent.
