From the reviews of the second edition:
“An excellent introduction to both point-set and algebraic topology at the early-graduate level, using manifolds as a primary source of examples and motivation. … The author has … fulfilled his objective of integrating a study of manifolds into an introductory course in general and algebraic topology. This text is well-organized and clearly written, with a good blend of motivational discussion and mathematical rigor. … Any student who has gone through this book should be well-prepared to pursue the study of differential geometry … .” (Mark Hunacek, The Mathematical Association of America, March, 2011)
“This book is designed for first year graduate students as an introduction to the topology of manifolds. … The book can be read with advantage by any graduate student with a good undergraduate background, and indeed by many upper class undergraduates. It can be used for self study or as a text book for a fine geometrically flavored introduction to manifolds. One which provides excellent motivation for studying the machinery needed for more advanced work.” (Jonathan Hodgson, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1209, 2011)
