    it sounds interesting, what should i know before i try to study it and what would be a good intro book to read?

    note this isn't just a book request

    I say this,

    The classic text is DoCarmo's 'Differential geometry of curves and surfaces'.

    You should know real analysis of several variables but of one variable is very viable.
