What is your background and what is the goal? If you want to learn about geometric algebra (a certain real Clifford algebra), then I recommend Alan Macdonald's books for a simple introduction that tie in linear algebra and some multivariable calc. They are *Linear and Geometric Algebra* and *Vector and Geometric Calculus*.

If you just want a short simple introduction to Clifford algebras then *An Introduction to Clifford Algebras and Spinors* by Vaz and da Rocha is good.

The only reason I’ve seen people care about Clifford algebras is to talk about spin representations. So anything that introduces the spin group should talk about Clifford algebras.

There is a chapter on spinors in the book by Hamilton Mathematical gauge theory where he introduces Clifford algebras.

Just ordered a Klein Bottle from Cliff Stoll. He sent me about 2 dozen pictures of him packing it up. Why is he so cute :)
