The external link gives the Second Edition (2013),so we shall use this as the main reference.The first edition (2003) has essentially the same contents, but is organized differently.

We may occationally make use of texts/exercises in other books, see below. In particular, the following can be useful for the student as a supplementary text, since it is perhaps more elementary and not so concise on certain topics. It is also freely accessible on the web :

Note. The recent edition of Kosinski's book (see above) is also interesting because of the new appendix on Perelman's work and the Poincare conjecture.
