The historical driving force of the theory of manifolds was General Relativity, where the manifold is four-dimensional spacetime, wormholes and all. This text is occupied with the theory of differential forms and the exterior derivative.
by Peter W. Michor - American Mathematical Society
Fundamentals of differential geometry: manifolds, flows, Lie groups and their actions, invariant theory, differential forms and de Rham cohomology, bundles and connections, Riemann manifolds, isometric actions, and symplectic and Poisson geometry.
by Noel J. Hicks - Van Nostrand
A concise introduction to differential geometry. The ten chapters of Hicks' book contain most of the mathematics that has become the standard background for not only differential geometry, but also much of modern theoretical physics and cosmology.

These notes are for a beginning graduate level course in differential geometry. It is assumed that this is the students' first course in the subject. Thus the choice of subjects and presentation has been made to facilitate a concrete picture.
