Spivak's 5 volume set is a classic and overall the best and most thorough treatment of differential geometry

So, if imbedding manifolds does not excite you, I'm afraid that you should pass on these three volumes.
Fortunately I've had better teachers in my training, as well as better books.
as for these, I personally find them too long to use except as a reference or when i'm confused. A real mathematician will get the detail of the proof and other technicalities on his or her own, so even if there are faults I find that any book with text of explaination and examples is worth it's weight. this is what makes it a five volume (as far as I know) set. i like it as a reference.
