From the reviews:

“The book under review grew out of courses that were taught by the senior author (Das) over the years … . it does serve as a useful reference work for researchers who would prefer a direct exposition of the topics that they are involved with.” (David H. Delphenich, Mathematical Reviews, May, 2013)

“This advanced work is only for those who are familiar with high-level tensor mathematics or who specialize in gravitation theory. … The authors provide detailed proofs to theorems with elaborate discussion. … Every chapter contains exercises with hints to solve them or complete solutions. An exhaustive list of references and a good index support the text. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers/faculty, and professionals.” (N. Sadanand, Choice, Vol. 50 (5), January, 2013)

“The General Theory of Relativity: A Mathematical Exposition is … written in a very clear style and the mathematics is done carefully and in detail. There are also a lot of ‘examples, worked-out problems, and exercises (with hints and solutions),’ … so it is certainly a pedagogically sound enterprise well worth the price of admission. I am happy to be able to recommend it.” (Michael Berg, The Mathematical Association of America, August, 2012)
