Excellent introduction in differential geometry.
The hints in the back of the book are often too vague to provide any useful insight into solving the problem, especially for someone not familiar with geometry.
It has plenty of exercises, many of them with answer or hints in the back of the book, and its exposition is broad, very clear and concise.
It is a surprise to me to see the very helpful graphs in this book (remember that the book was published in 1970s).Published 4 months ago by ADAM

The printing quality to price ratio for this book is appalling. If I only graded this on content it might squeak by with 5 stars. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Andrew Duncan
This book is one of the poor math books I have come across. The major issue I had using this book is that it provides very little motivation. Read morePublished 18 months ago by user17762
The printing of the cover is not as clear as normal books. Some scratches on corners.
I like it otherwise.
The book uses standard notation, so it is easy to follow. It works primarily in 3 real dimensions rather than Space Time or a more abstract space. Read morePublished on June 30, 2012 by Gordon F. Diss
I really like Do Carmo's style of presentation, I can just imagine what type of lecturer he was. Though there are other books on the subject that are more concise a/o cover more... Read morePublished on October 16, 2010 by mathematician-philosopher
