Number of pages: 61

Description:
The little that exists of the 3-manifolds book (see below for a table of contents) is rather crude and unpolished, and doesn't cover a lot of material, but it does contain a few things that aren't readily available elsewhere, like the elementary form of the Jaco-Shalen/Johannson torus decomposition theorem.
