Here are my notes and solutions to problems in the book Einstein Gravity in a Nutshell by Anthony Zee (Princeton University Press, 2013). As always, I give no guarantee that the solutions are all correct, so if you spot any errors, please do leave a comment.
The book is similar in style to Zee’s Quantum Field Theory in a Nutshell, in that it is written for undergraduates using a relaxed and often humorous approach. My only criticism might be in the title: calling an 889-page book a ‘nutshell’ implies a very large nut.
I’m not aware of any online list of errata for this book. (There are a couple of sites that claim to be such, but don’t list more than a couple of typos.) If anyone knows of an official errata site for this book, please leave a comment below.
