This page will contain links to various versions of the Surgery for Amateurs book.

  • The 2004 text, as close as I can get to the original presentation.
  • The 2013 text, revised incorporating ideas from algebraic surgery.
  • The 2017 text, a further revision of the 2004 text.
  • The blog is available on this site (the home-page is in fact the beginning of the blog).  Below is a listing of all the blog posts that have content related directly (i.e. not “meta”) to the mathematical content of the book itself.
