Anthony Zee gives us a tour of gravity through Einstein's Theory of General Relativity.
Anthony's book "On Gravity" is available now -

Starting with the discovery of gravity waves, Anthony goes on to explain how gravity can be understood in comparison to other classical field theories, presents the idea of curved spacetime and the action principle, and explores cutting-edge topics, including black holes and Hawking radiation. And what can our current knowledge tell us about what we don't yet know, from quantum gravity to mysteries of dark matter and energy.

Watch the Q&A:

Anthony Zee is a physicist, writer, and currently a professor at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics and the physics department of the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Professor Zee has authored or co-authored more than 200 scientific publications and several books. He has written on particle physics, condensed matter physics, anomalies in physics, random matrix theory, superconductivity, the quantum Hall effect, and other topics in theoretical physics and evolutionary biology, as well as their various interrelations.
