The author recalls,Inspired by [previous results], D. C. Spencer and I conceived a theory of deformation of compact complex manifolds which is based on the primitive idea that, since a compact complex manifold M is composed of a finite number of coordinate neighbourhoods patched together, its deformation would be a shift in the patches. Quite naturally it follows from this idea that an infinitesimal deformation of M should be represented by an element of the cohomology group H1(M, Theta) of M with coefficients in the sheaf of germs of holomorphic vector fields. However, there seemed to be no reason that any given element of H1(M, Theta) represents an infinitesimal deformation of M. In spite of this, examination of familiar examples of compact complex manifolds M revealed a mysterious phenomenon that dim H1(M, Theta) coincides with the number of effective parameters involved in the definition of M. In order to clarify this mystery, Spencer and I developed the theory of deformation of compact complex manifolds. The process of the development was the most interesting experience in my whole mathematical life. It was similar to an experimental science developed by the interaction between experiments (examination of examples) and theory. In this book I have tried to reproduce this interesting experience; however I could not fully convey it. Such an experience may be a passing phenomenon which cannot be reproduced.
Via Amazon:One of the valuable features of the book that is actually rare in more recent books on mathematics is that the author tries (and succeeds) to give motivation for the subject. This feature is actually quite common in older books on mathematics, for with few exceptions writers at that time believed that a proper understanding of mathematics can only come with explanations that are given outside the deductive structures that are created in the process of doing mathematics. These explanations frequently involve the use of diagrams, pictures, intuitive arguments, and historical analogies, and so are not held to be rigorous from a mathematical standpoint. They are however extremely valuable to students of mathematics and those who are interested in applying it, like physicists and engineers. Luckily though the author of this book has given the reader valuable insights into the nature of complex manifolds and what is means to deform a complex structure. Complex manifolds are different from real manifolds due to the notion of holomorphicity, but are similar in the sense that they are constructed from domains that are "glued together". L.D.Carlson
And from published reviews: "This is a book of many virtues: mathematical, historical, and pedagogical. Parts of it could be used for a graduate complex manifolds course. J.A. Carlson in Mathematical Reviews, 1987 "There are many mathematicians, or even physicists, who would find this book useful and accessible, but its distinctive attribute is the insight it gives into a brilliant mathematician's work. It is intriguing to sense between the lines Spencer's optimism, Kodaira's scepticism or the shadow of Grauert with his very different methods, as it is to hear of the surprises and ironies which appeared on the way. Most of all it is a piece of work which shows mathematics as lying somewhere between discovery and invention, a fact which all mathematicians know, but most inexplicably conceal in their work." N.J. Hitchin in the Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society, 1987
