Robert Geroch's lecture notes on differential geometry reflect his original and successful style of teaching - explaining abstract concepts with the help of intuitive examples and many figures. The book introduces the most important concepts of differential geometry and can be used for self-study since each chapter contains examples and exercises, plus test and examination problems which are given in the Appendix. As these lecture notes are written by a theoretical physicist, who is an expert in general relativity, they can serve as a very helpful companion to Geroch's excellent "General Relativity: 1972 Lecture Notes."
