An excellent companion to Spivak's "Calculus on Manifolds", this text engagingly bridges the gap between the Gibbs formulation of vector calculus and the modern Cartan formulation using differential forms so that one can properly study differential geometry. Gives many excellent exercises and examples of curious behavior. It is also exceptionally reader-friendly; the authors sprinkle historical anecdotes and modern applications throughout the text and have a voice that is very down-to-earth.

I read parts of the last chapter to help me with Spivak and it was really really good. It does in 150 pages what spivak does in about 40, which is mostly a testament of how terse the latter is. I expect to return to this this term for my diff geo class.
