Physics Today: Teaching GR to undergraduates

Whereas in 1919 Arthur Eddington was allegedly at a loss to name a third person who understood general relativity, presently its knowledge and use are widespread. We have come a long way in a century.

From here. A quite detailed analysis of different approaches to the teaching of GR.


D'Inverno's book is not listed in the recommendations of the Physics Today article. 
Unfortunately, this book is often underestimated. 
It's basic and all, but i found it brief, clear and to the point. I mean, you'll find a quick answer to most of your doubts in this book.
