  • review: An excellent book that takes a slow but methodological approach to present mathematical concepts of geometry and topology and how they fit within the applications required by physics and more specifically quantum gravity and string theories. I think I barely understood 10% of what is covered, given that a lot of the mathematical theories require time to digest and ruminate and grasp, but the fact that the book really explains things from a simple approach first approach means I have both an appreciation as well as knowledge about what goes on inside the reseach in these areas. Illuminating, educational.,
