Assembly manifest vs metadata


I've read a few articles on this and I still can't seem to get it set
in my brain! What's the correlation between these two? Some articles
seem to use the terms interchangeably! Cheers for any explanation!

Metadata contains descriptions of everything in a managed module. That
includes the assembly manifest if there is one.

Ummm, every assembly will have a manifest, this contains metadata about
the assembly with stuff like the libraries that the assembly uses, its
version and the resources that it uses (linked and embedded).
