"In the reviewer's opinion, this is a superb book which makes learning a real pleasure."
¿ Revue Romaine de Mathematiques Pures et Appliquees
"This main-stream presentation of differential geometry serves well for a course on Riemannian geometry, and it is complemented by many annotated exercises."
¿ Monatshefte F. Mathematik
"This is one of the best (if even not just the best) book for those who want to get a good, smooth and quick, but yet thorough introduction to modern Riemannian geometry."
