Later on page 95 he claims in Theorem 2.
Yes but as I read theorem 3. The mistake in the proof seems to come at the bottom of page 91 when he claims: The book introduces both manifolcs h-cobordism As the textbook says on the bottom of pg 91 at least in my editionthe existence of your g comes from Theorem 3.
Email Required, but never shown.
In his section on connect sums, Kosinski does not seem to acknowledge that, in the case where the manifolds in question do not admit orientation reversing diffeomorphisms, the topology in fact homotopy type of a connect differebtial of two smooth differentisl may depend on the particular identification of spheres used to connect the manifolds.
Presents the study and classification of smooth structures on manifolds It begins with the elements of theory and concludes with an introduction to the method of surgery Chapters contain a detailed presentation of the foundations of differential topology–no knowledge of algebraic topology is required for this self-contained section Chapters begin by explaining the joining of manifolds along submanifolds, and ends with the proof of the h-cobordism theory Chapter 9 presents the Pontriagrin construction, the principle link between differential topology and homotopy theory; The final chapter introduces the method of surgery and applies it to the classification of smooth structures on spheres.
An orientation reversing differeomorphism of the real line which we use to induce an orientation reversing differeomorphism of the Euclidean space minus a point. Differential Manifolds Antoni A.

The presentation of diffferential number of topics in a clear and simple fashion make this book an outstanding choice for a graduate course in differential topology as well as for individual study.
So if you feel really confused you should consult other sources or even the original paper in some of the topics. Subsequent chapters explain the technique of joining manifolds along submanifolds, the handle presentation theorem, and the proof of the h-cobordism theorem based on these constructions. Reprint of the Academic Press, Boston, edition. The text is maniolds by numerous interesting historical notes and contains a new appendix, “The Differemtial of Grigory Perelman,” by John W.
This seems like such an egregious error in such an otherwise solid book that I felt I should ask if anyone has noticed to be sure I’m not misunderstanding something basic.

The concepts of differential topology lie at the heart of many mathematical manifoolds such as differential geometry and the theory of lie groups. I disagree that Kosinski’s book is solid though.
