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. As the textbook says on the bottom of pg 91 at least in my editionthe existence of your g manifoldss from Theorem 3. I think there is no conceptual difficulty at here.
Kosinski, Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Rutgers University, offers an accessible approach to both the h-cobordism theorem and the classification of differential structures on spheres.
Chapter VI Operations on Manifolds. Contents Chapter I Differentiable Structures. The presentation of a 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.

References to this book Differential Geometry: Differential Manifolds Antoni A. For his definition of connected sum we have: Later on page 95 he claims in Theorem 2. The mistake in the proof seems to come at the bottom of page 91 when he claims: Yes but as I read theorem 3. Sharpe Limited preview – Academic PressDec 3, – Mathematics – pages. An orientation reversing differeomorphism of the real line which we use to induce an orientation reversing differeomorphism of the Euclidean space minus a point.
Bombyx mori 13k 6 28 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 sum of two smooth manifolds may depend on the particular identification of spheres used to connect the manifolds.
Selected pages Page 3. So if you feel really confused you should consult other sources or even the original paper in some of the topics.
There follows a chapter on the Pontriagin Construction—the principal link between differential topology and homotopy theory.
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.
