Sometimes statements are proven in a very hand wavy way, and then there are problems where such hand wavy arguments would make a statement trivial. One of these items ships sooner than the other. How hard can that be in the modern small-volume printing era? English Choose a language for shopping.
If it were cheaper, I think it’d be a great way to acquaint oneself with the subject. We’re using this text right now for my differential topology class.
differential topology – Well-definedness of Guillemin and Pollack’s $df_x$ – MathOverflow
Problems at the end of chapters will omit important details like what regularity one should assume for a function, if a manifold is compact, and other such things. Think very hard about what I’ve written, and try to convince yourself fuillemin it is true.
My single star refers not to the text itself, but to the quality of this printing and to the value of the purchase. By relying on a unifying idea—transversality—the authors are able to avoid the use of big machinery or ad hoc techniques to establish the main results. Amazon Pollacck Find, attract, and engage customers. Chapter 4 is particularly well-written, with a very incisive discussion of connections among geometry, algebra, and topology.

You are studying differential topology right now. Definitions, theorems and proofs are often mixed in paragraphs with a large amount of wishy-washy explanations, which makes the book useless if you are using it for reference.
This book is great for someone like me, who has seen bits and pieces of results from differential topology but would like to see a unified presentation of it. Some of the comments have suggested using algebraic topology.
