From the reviews:

“The book is written in a very pedagogical style and seems to be the mirror of the original ideas of its author in the area of mathematical physics. … The typography is excellent and the figures are beautiful. … Graduate and advanced undergraduate students in physics and even in mathematics will find in this book an understanding of the contribution of Clifford algebras to the field of differential geometry as well as motivation to continue their study.” (Pierre Anglès, Mathematical Reviews, March, 2014)

“The book under review is perfectly organized textbook for undergraduate students in mathematics and physics due to the large experience of the author. … The author provides quite interesting historical analysis … . This book is a natural continuation of the previous book of the author … .” (Milen Hristov, JGSP Journal of Geometry and Symmetry in Physics, Vol. 33, 2014)

“The author develops the differential geometry of curves and surfaces by using Clifford’s geometric algebra. … The book is enriched with several very interesting and extensive historical and biographical presentations. … it can serve as an accompanying source for someone who studies differential geometry, or for someone who wants to look at known facts from a different viewpoint. Also, it is ideal for studying geometry through historical development, and thus this book could also be useful for reading courses on certain aspects of geometry.” (A. Arvanitoyeorgos, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1232, 2012)
