This question already has an answer here:

My understanding of algebraic topology and Riemannian geometry come from Nakahara's Geometry, Topology, and Physics, which I do not think is sufficient. I am first year PhD student, and I want to do string theory at my university. Can you recommend me any other really nice books that I should read over the years.


Before answering, please see our policy on resource recommendation questions. Please write substantial answers that detail the style, content, and prerequisites of the book, paper or other resource. Explain the nature of the resource so that readers can decide which one is best suited for them rather than relying on the opinions of others. Answers containing only a reference to a book or paper will be removed!

  • $\begingroup$ Oops. Sorry. Should I delete the post? However, I have heard of or skimmed through many of the books that are in that post. None of them seem to be algebriac geometry books... So maybe some people can give me some recommendations in this area too? $\endgroup$ – Quantization Sep 4 '14 at 21:01
