    Reviews & endorsements

    "This book, though relatively short, is packed with interesting information. The student who would like a brief but substantial introduction to foliation theory will find it rewarding, but should be prepared for some hard work. There are many exercises, often challenging, and these illuminate the ideas and sometimes incorporate significant steps of proofs." Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society
