I enjoy listening to Professor Schumacher very much. He is enjoyable to follow and seems to know his subjects well. This is my second "Great Course" with him and I look forward to seeing others with him.

Understanding Gravity with Benjamin Schumacher, might be my favorite Great Courses... course. Schumacher is terrific. He weaves the stories of science and gravity with Einstein's Special and General Theories of Relativity, in a very entertaining and informative way. He brings to life the stories of the people most involved with our current understanding of gravity. The story of gravity and the people who figured out it's properties, is expertly told by Schumacher. As always, with a complex subject, it is best to seek out other works on gravity, as you will pick up new information, or have old information retold in a way that makes more sense. But this course, is the one I seem to keep coming back to for reviewings!
