I think there is no conceptual difficulty at here. For his definition of connected sum we have: Two manifolds M 1, M 2 with the same dimension in.

Avoid using local co-ordinates and especially those damn Christoffel symbols.

Sold by bookwire and ships from Amazon Fulfillment. I work in representation theory mostly and have found that sometimes my background is insufficient. Required prerequisites are minimal, and the proofs are well spelt out making these suitable for self study.

Since the purpose of the first 4 chapters about 75 pp is to develop the machinery of differential topology to the point where the results on handles, cobordism, and surgery can be proved, several topics are briefly touched upon that are generally not encountered in introductory diff top books, such as the group Gamma of differential structures on the m-sphere mod those that extend over the m-disk or the bidegree of a map from a product of spheres to a sphere, in addition to the aforementioned results of Whitney and Haefliger, but just enough is given so that they may be used in later proofs.
Topics covered include the basics of smooth manifolds, smooth vector bundles, submersions, immersions, embeddings, Whitney’s embedding theorem, differential forms, de Rham cohomology, Lie derivatives, integration on manifolds, Lie groups, and Lie algebras.
And it’s really about differential topology that is the title after all and not differential geometry. Morgan, which discusses the most recent developments in differential topology. Try the Kindle edition and experience these great reading features: Is there really such a subject as “basic differential geometry?
I want to be able to converse and understand the essential material, but I’m not looking to become an expert. Perhaps most diffdrential try diffetential do this, but Berger is particularly generous with it, and good at it, in my opinion. One of them, Degeneration of Riemannian metrics under Ricci curvature boundsis available on Amazon. I just want to point out that neither of these suggestions are actually about differential geometry, they cover only differential topology.

Reading list for basic differential geometry? – MathOverflow
For a basic undergraduate introduction to differential geometry, I’d highly recommend Manfredo Do Carmo’s Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces. So far, I like Petersen’s book best. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. The topics covered include the basics of smooth manifolds, function spaces odd but welcome for books of this classtransversality, vector bundles, tubular neighborhoods, collars, map degree, intersection numbers, Morse theory, cobordisms, isotopies, and classification of two dimensional surfaces.
He doesn’t shy away from giving informal descriptions of ideas and motivations behind definitions.
