Review of previous edition: 'This book provides a highly detailed account of the intricacies involved in considering geometrical concepts.' Contemporary Physics
'If you're looking for a well-written and well-motivated introduction to differential geometry, this one looks hard to beat.' Fernando Q. Gouvea, MAA Online
'... a first rate introductory textbook ... the style is lively and exposition is clear which make the text easy to read ... This book will be beneficial to students and scientists wishing to learn the foundations of differential geometry and algebraic topology as well as geometric formulations of modern physical theories.' Pure and Applied Geophysics
'... this book should not be missing in any physics or mathematics library.' European Mathematical Society
'This book is a great read and has a lot to offer to graduate students in both mathematics and physics. I wish I had had it on my desk when I began studying geometry.' AMS Review
Review of previous edition: 'The layout, the typography and the illustrations of this advanced textbook on modern mathematical methods are all very impressive and so are the topics covered in the text.' Zentralblatt fur Mathematik und ihre Grenzgebiete
'... contains a wealth of interesting material for both the beginning and the advanced levels. The writing may feel informal but it is precise - a masterful exposition. Users of this 'introduction' will be well prepared for further study of differential geometry and its use in physics and engineering ... As did earlier editions, this third edition will continue to promote the language with which mathematicians and scientists can communicate.' Jay P. Fillmore, SIAM Review
