Geometry, topology and physics
The final two chapters look at anomalies in gauge field theories and at bosonic string theory.
The book has plenty of diagrams and examples of how the subject matter relates to physical systems. This book doesn't have too steep a learning curve - I felt that someone who had a sound understanding of undergraduate level physics would find it fairly straightforward to work through the first half of the book, but that after that it would become more challenging. Those looking for a gentler approach might prefer The geometry of physics by Theodore Frankel and move on to Nakahara's book when they want to get on to research level topics.
