Both modern differential geometry, which lies at the heart of many recent advances in mathematics, from analysis to algebraic geometry and to mathematical physics, and also classical geometry, have been active subjects of research throughout the 20th century. This fact is the underlying motivating concept for the new book of Marcel Berger. The 'ladder' in question is one on which, in the process of solving a problem, the geometer climbs up one rung or successive rungs of increasing abstraction, each time thus obtaining a better view from higher up of the problem and its environment, recalling the 'ladder' in the Old Testament, that angels ascended and descended...Marcel Berger is the author of numerous successful books on geometry, is this book once again is addressed to all students and teachers of mathematics with an affinity for geometry.
