Yeah,but; you have to remind us that it is a 3 dimensional phenomena applicable to all masses being expressed in 2 dimensions by 1 object.  While stated, the dimensional limitation needs repeating for those of us less memory blessed.  And the mutuality of gravitational attraction is not mentioned.  Still it is a nice intro into space/time distortion caused by mass.
