The Shape of Space brings topology to the general reader by showing how to visualize manifolds directly ... complements existing textbooks, which often deal only in abstractions, by offering a wealth of concrete examples ... includes the first elementary exposition of William P. Thurston's revolutionary discoveries ... applies topology to cosmology ... gives the first simple pictorial exposition of the Gauss-Bonnet formula ... builds intuition with more than 140 hands-on exercises, all with complete solutions ... and offers over 170 illustrations.

With the use of computer graphics and non-technical language, author Jeffrey Weeks explains the idea of topology, an area of mathematics important for theorizing about the shape of the universe. A glimpse of non-Euclidean geometry is provided by showing how a two-dimensional space a "fundamental domain", may be considered to be the surface of a torus, with properties different from those of a different plane. The analogy is extended by showing a cube as a fundamental domain. Also included is an interview with Jeffrey Weeks
