*John Milnor*

A publication of Publish or Perish, Inc

This volume contains papers on geometry of one of the best
modern geometers and topologists, John Milnor. This book covers
a wide variety of topics and includes several previously
unpublished works. It is delightful reading for any
mathematician with an interest in geometry and topology and for
any person with an interest in mathematics. (A number of papers
in the collection, intended for a general mathematical audience,
have been published in the American Mathematical Monthly.) Each
paper is accompanied by the author's comments on further
development of the subject.

The volume contains twenty-one papers and is partitioned into
three parts: Differential geometry and curvature, Algebraic
geometry and topology, and Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry.
Although some of the papers were written quite a while ago, they
appear more modern than many of today's publications. Milnor's
excellent, clear, and laconic style makes the book a real treat.

This volume is highly recommended to a broad mathematical
audience, and, in particular, to young mathematicians who will
certainly benefit from their acquaintance with Milnor's mode of
thinking and writing.
