"Mathematical Perspectives on Theoretical Physics: A Journey from Black Holes to Superstrings" by Nirmala Prakash.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/1860943659/?tag=pfamazon01-20

Just wondering if anyone here has read or are using the book? What's your opinion about the book? As in, personally, do you think it is worth to spend time reading page by page or does it serve better as reference book? Two of the comments on amazon.com doesn't speak too highly of the book though.

This book is a labor of love, but it was written before the "second string theory revolution", so few students would find it efficient nowadays. Still, I applaud the author for making the effort of writing it under adverse circumstances, and physics students might well find some of the chapters useful for general physics-related background. I.e. for dipping into rather than reading cover to cover.
