Einstein's general theory of relativity is widely considered to be one of the most elegant and successful scientific theories ever developed, and it is increasingly being taught in a simplified form at advanced undergraduate level within both physics and mathematics departments. Due to the increasing interest in gravitational physics, in both the academic and the public sphere, driven largely by widely-publicised developments such as the recent observations of gravitational waves, general relativity is also one of the most popular scientific topics pursued through self-study. Modern General Relativity introduces the reader to the general theory of relativity using an example-based approach, before describing some of its most important applications in cosmology and astrophysics, such as gamma-ray bursts, neutron stars, black holes, and gravitational waves. With hundreds of worked examples, explanatory boxes, and end-of-chapter problems, this textbook provides a solid foundation for understanding one of the towering achievements of twentieth-century physics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'A timely book which offers a simple and clear introduction to the theory of general relativity and its modern applications to cosmology, astrophysical black holes, and the exciting field of gravitational wave astronomy.' David Tong, University of Cambridge
'This book stands out for its efficiency in balancing text with practical mathematics while still maintaining clarity, breadth, and up-to-date coverage of cosmology and gravitational wave sources. On balance, this may be the best current textbook on the market for an undergraduate course on general relativity for physical science majors.' Eric G. Blackman, University of Rochester
'Mike Guidry has done an amazing job in presenting the most up-to-date aspects of general relativity, using a refreshing intuitive approach based on a variety of observable phenomena in physics and astronomy. A highly recommended text!' Djordje Minic, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
'Guidry's new book is a winner. While its depth and coverage are superior to most other textbooks at this level, it manages to stay pedagogical and friendly throughout. Impressive!' Rafael Lopez-Mobilia, University of Texas, San Antonio
