It is too brief in the last 4 chapters on the advanced topics characteristic classes, index theorem, anomaly, bosonic stringwhich, understandably though, read like a quick survey.

Geometry, Topology and Physics
This book is a “gateway” text that will secure your addiction to more advanced geometry and topology, and dare I say get you hooked on the physical applications, like String Theory and Topological QFTs.
Within this book there is not only a whole course on DG, but a good guide to advanced quantum mechanics and introductory relativity.

It is written in a really nice format to. Graduate Student Series in Physics. Visit our Beautiful Books page and find lovely books for kids, photography lovers and more. There is also a large number of exercises and problems, and last but not least, an index Book ratings by Goodreads.
What this book is great for is a ton of worked out examples, and I would highly recommend it as a supplement to other more detailed and rigorous texts, or as a decent overview if you don’t need to know the material well enough to work with it.

Geometry, Topology and Physics, Third Edition
Description Covering recent developments in the field, this updated text provides an introduction to the ideas and techniques of differential geometry and topology. The author examines anomalies in gauge field theories, bosonic string theory, Brane-World cosmology, Seiberg-Witten invariants, and topological quantum computing.
Basic theory of vector spaces and topology is also include This textbook provides an introduction to the ideas and techniques of differential geometry and topology. Gekmetry the price of this book and its given clarity, it is a bargin!
It attempts to be self contained, but some topics for example singular homology and many physics topics are dealt with in such a terse and hand waving fashion that there is no hope of understanding what is going on unless you are already comfortable with the topic.
