comment What is (co)homology, and how does a beginner gain intuition about it?
@DanielMcLaury Hatcher's "Algebraic Topology" has a section on the "Dold-Thom theorem" as section 4.K. Look there.

comment Action of the mapping class group on separating spheres in a connected sum of aspherical 3-manifolds
@RyanBudney I might be misconstruing your comment, but I think you are describing the generators of $Aut(\pi_1(M))$, like on page 9 of the Hatcher-Wahl paper arxiv.org/abs/0709.2173. The map $\Gamma \to Aut(\pi_1(M))$ has a kernel (also described there). I am not sure how all of those things act on $\pi_2(M)$. Even with the elements of $\Gamma$ whose action I understand, I'm not sure whether there is some clever way to show that $2 \cdot [S_1] = 0 \in \pi_2(M)//\Gamma$ (the fact that $g \cdot [S_1] = 0$ was already a surprise to me).

@user39082 Yes, I do. That is a very good point, thank you.

comment Action of the mapping class group on separating spheres in a connected sum of aspherical 3-manifolds
@user39082: The mapping class group includes an element that rotates the picture I drew by 90 degrees clockwise. This takes $S_1$ to $S_2$, and thus identifies them in $\pi_2(M)//\Gamma$.

comment What out-of-print books would you like to see re-printed?
@chs21259 Try following the links from: google.com/… I assume you know this, but the word for "download" is "скачать" :).
