Good book(s) about tensors


I'm taking a course that involve tensors, but to almost no extent (about 10 pages), and I really would like to learn more about these. Does anyone know any good book or books about tensors suitable for learning tensors from scratch?

Thank you

I know about "The absolute differential calculus" by Levi-Civita, think it may help you!

Re: Good book(s) about tensors

I wrote this introduction to tensors.
It is also short and incomplete but self-sufficient, giving a full basic defintion, and I cared to make it much clearer than anything I know of on the subject.
Of course many other interesting developments may be added on the subject for its many possible applications (in particular the symmetric and antisymmetric tensors), but if you start with my text, I think it will make it easier to complete the picture from other sources.
I don't know when I will further develop it as I have other subjects to write on.
