## Reviews

*Editorial reviews*

Publisher Synopsis

From the reviews of the second edition: "Pressley's gives you a very comprehensible and down to earth introduction to differential geometry. ... the book contains lots of examples and fully worked answers to all exercises, which makes it perfect for self-study. ... This book will also appeal to those who want to learn on their own, as every problem has a hint/solution in the back. If you want a very general introduction of Differential Geometry, this is the book to start." (Philosophy, Religion and Science Book Reviews, bookinspections.wordpress.com, October, 2013) "I am very happy to report that the new edition of Pressley's Elementary Differential Geometry is an even better book than the first edition ... . full solutions to all problems given in an appendix. ... Most of the problems are in the book and have solutions in the back. ... The upshot is that this is still an excellent book and still my first choice for an undergraduate introduction to differential geometry." (Fernando Q. Gouvea, The Mathematical Association of America, May, 2010) Read more...
