"This is a very advanced textbook on metric and algebraic proofs of critical theorems in the field of metric spaces involving manifolds and other 3D structures. ... First, definitions, theorems, proofs, and exercises abound throughout every section of this 500 page mathematics book. The history of development in the area is comprehensive. ... The experts will find this a useful research tool. ... I recommend this book for researchers having a strong background to begin with." (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, June, 2016)
