This book is an elementary account of the geometry of curves and surfaces. It is written for students who have completed standard courses in calculus and linear .
Differential geometry is concerned with the precise mathematical formulation of some of these questions.
It is a subject that contains some of the most beautiful and profound results in mathematics yet many of these are accessible to higher-level undergraduates. Elementary Differential Geometry presents the main results in the differential geometry of curves and surfaces suitable for a first course on the subject.

I really liked this book. I read it to review some basic concepts in differential geometry. I found the book very concise but not too terse and well organized.
It is less advanced than the book by do Carmo and this book has a slightly more computational approach in some sections. However, this is good because of the intended audience.
Some books start off right away with manifolds and a chapter full of definitions such as derivations and p-forms and such.
I think this book does an excellent job preparing the reader for more advanced books on differential geometry by starting with Euclidean space and exposing the reader to the important ideas that makes the emergence of the more abstract idea of manifolds very logical.
Kindle Edition Verified download. I like the attention to detail and the numerous examples. The exercises and tips on the use of Mathematica to generate images of curves and surfaces turned what could be a dry subject into something exciting. On the down side, the hyperlinks to prior exercises, lemmas, theorems, etc. This is a small price to pay.
I am using this product to prepare for the study of general relativity. This is an excellent introduction to differential geometry.
It has numerous exercises with answers in the book which make it appropriate for self study. All that is needed is some familiarity with linear algebra and vector calculus, but even this book is self contained enough that even without exposure to either of those it is still approachable.
I think that after working through this book a student will be well prepared to take on a more advanced book like Riemannian Geometry by do Carmo or Differential Geometry by Kuhnel.
Perfect introduction to the field of differential geometry. I found this book to be exactly what I needed to build my fundamental knowledge of the subject, especially in terms of computations. Very accessible for undergrads.
I've used both books together and felt that the two books compliment each other very well. What O'Neill's book lacks in set-up and motivation, McCleary's book more than makes up for. What McCleary's book lacks in computational methodology and rigour, O'Neill's book more than makes up for.
If you're feeling passionate about getting into the subject of differential geometry and modern geometry in general, I cannot highly recommend using both books together enough.
This book is not like new, but very new. The package is very, very good!
Thank you! An excellent intro to diffy geo. I enjoyed this course in college. The book was difficult in areas, but I think it covers the subject area well. One person found this helpful.
Schoenagel Top Contributor: Quantum Physics. I have long desired to write a review of this textbook. I began to write a review three separate times, I never finished.
Each time I felt that my review had fallen short. This attempt will hardly be different: However, in order to set things in motion, I extract this line from the review of the website of Mathematical Association of America: Now, that line from that mostly positive MAA review pertains to the second edition.
If a student for whom this text is addressed preface: If an instructor is unable to successfully "teach" a course utilizing this textbook, I am at a loss, as the text is a hallmark of erudition!
Let us take a closer look into this beautiful textbook as it is not a treatise nor a monograph: What you learn in earlier chapters is placed into service again, at increasing levels of abstraction.
If you do not care for that methodology, seek another source. Thus, the initial chapter leads up to the inverse-function theorem page 39, stated without proof. Exercises 10 and 11 taken as a set will first ask you to supply a proof, then will ask for a computation one to one, onto, inverse. A summary concludes chapter one. Learn why "the geometry of Euclidean space can be derived from the dot-product. Parametrization, orientation, these are emphasized.
Covariant derivative introduced. Regards frame fields: Next, connection one-forms and structure equations.
