Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition: "An excellent introduction to both point-set and algebraic topology at the early-graduate level, using manifolds as a primary source of examples and motivation. ... The author has ... fulfilled his objective of integrating a study of manifolds into an introductory course in general and algebraic topology. This text is well-organized and clearly written, with a good blend of motivational discussion and mathematical rigor. ... Any student who has gone through this book should be well-prepared to pursue the study of differential geometry ... ." (Mark Hunacek, The Mathematical Association of America, March, 2011)
