  • For readers interested in the historical development of the subject:
    • Jean Eisenstaedt, The Curious History of Relativity (Princeton University Press, 2006).
    • Abraham Pais, Subtle is the Lord (Oxford University Press, 1982).
  • Books at a similar level to the present one:
    • Albert Einstein, Relativity (reprinted in the Routledge Classics series, 2001 [1954]).
    • Max Born, Einstein’s Theory of Relativity (Dover, 1962).
    • Hermann Bondi, Relativity and Common Sense (Dover, 1964).
    • Domenico Giulini, Special Relativity: A First Encounter (Oxford University Press, 2005).
    • Stephen Hawking, A Briefer History of Time (Bantam, 2005).
    • N. David Mermin, It’s About Time (Princeton University Press, 2003).
    • Bernard Schutz, Gravity from the Ground Up (Cambridge University Press, 2003).
    • John Taylor, Black Holes (Souvenir Press, 1998).
  • Somewhat more mathematical treatments of the subject:
    • George F. R. Ellis and Ruth M. Williams, Flat and Curved Space-Times (Oxford University Press, 2000).
    • W. S. C. Williams, Introducing Special Relativity (Taylor and Francis, 2002).
    • Wolfgang Rindler, Relativity (Oxford University Press, 2006).
    • Vesselin Petkov, Relativity and the Nature of Spacetime (Springer, 2004).
  • A full understanding of general relativity requires a sophisticated grasp of mathematics. There are many books written at this level, including the following:
    • Richard A. Mould, Basic Relativity (Springer, 1994).
    • Robert M. Wald, General Relativity (University of Chicago Press, 1984).
    • Hans C. Ohanian and Remo Ruffini, Gravitation and Spacetime (Norton, 1994).
    • Ta-Pei Cheng, Relativity, Gravitation, and Cosmology (Oxford University Press, 2005).
    • James B. Hartle, Gravity: An Introduction to Einstein’s General Relativity (Addison Wesley, 2005).
  • And at the opposite end of the spectrum, for children of ten years and upwards:
    • Russell Stannard, The Time and Space of Uncle Albert (Faber and Faber, 1989).
