A very cohomolohy study of the concept of degree, linking numbers, and indexes of vector fields is given, as preparation for later discussions on Morse theory and the Poincare-Hopf theorem.
From Calculus to Cohomology: The book can get quite esoteric very quickly, and I feel somehow that it could have been more natural to insert the example of cohomology from calculus given in the first chapter after differential forms, for example.
