**Audience**: Students in technical disciplines (in particular, in Physics and Mathematics) should be potentially interested in the book. I have said it many times and I will repeat it herein: my suggestion is that you the marketing team approach all libraries of all academical institutions. Almost all Universities have Physics and Mathematics Departments. All libraries in such institutions are potential customers. In addition, research centres (Particle Physics and/or Astronomy) are also good candidates for customers. The book has been written as a guide of the non-expert into the world of gravitation, but it might also be of interest to the early researcher in this domain.
