Introduces and progresses with the subject in ways that are very conducive to good learning and understanding, and fills a real (and currently unmet) need in an undergraduate's education in preparation for some of modern physics' most fascinating areas. * S. Leslie Blatt, Clark University, Worcester, Massachusetts *
Stresses Einstein's legacy of using the symmetry principle to discover new physics, and introduces the relevant mathematics in a very gradual way. * Ta-Pei Cheng, University of Missouri - St Louis *
