From the reviews:

"The book is concerned with mutual relations between the differential geometry of surfaces and the theory of integrable nonlinear systems of partial differential equations. It concentrates on the Darboux matrix method for constructing explicit solutions to various integrable nonlinear PDEs. ... This book can be recommended for students and researchers who are interested in a differential-geometric approach to integrable nonlinear PDE's." (Jun-ichi Inoguchi, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2006 i)
