Publisher's Summary

What causes spacetime to curve? Einstein's theory of relativity offers an answer, but for decades after he published it, there were only a few, very subtle tests of its validity. How has modern astrophysics changed all that?

No WHY really

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, to anyone seeking for a very basic course on general relativity with emphasys on the curvature of spacetime. In general I am a great fan of The Great Courses series.

Any additional comments?

I think the title is misleading. Unless I missed something, the book does not actually explain WHY does the spacetime curve, unless because Einstein said so is the explanation. Except for that, I think there is not really much more one can say in only 28 minutes.
