This textbook is suitable for a one-semester introduction to General Relativity for advanced undergraduates in physics and engineering. The book is concise so that the entire material can be covered in the one-semester time frame. Besides, the readers are introduced to the subject easily without the need for advanced mathematics. Though concise, the theory development is lucid and the readers are exposed to possible analytic calculations. Full solutions to some important problems are provided, and the experimental evidence is discussed in detail.
