This is a splendid and lucid account of infinite-dimensional Lie groups. I strongly recommend it to anyone with an interest in Lie groups, finite- dimensional or infinite-dimensional. The author discusses locally convex vector spaces, differential calculus, smooth manifolds and vector fields, Lie groups, diffeomorphism groups, the exponential map and product integrals, from Lie algebra to Lie group, non-analyticity of Diff(M), some homotopy groups of Lie groups.
