He takes an openly didactic approach, and does not hesitate to make those new to the theory as comfortable as possible, covering the mathematical preliminaries first by describing tensors in amorphous spaces and tensors in Riemann spaces, then introduces general relativity in terms of basic theories, Schwarzchild's metric, classical texts and complements of tensor calculus and general relativity.
