This is a special book for me: The volume contains six chapters which deal with the following topics: As a note however, for some of the more difficult ones I had assistance from PhD students who found them interesting, and for some of those questions, certain aspects raised issues that I never found anyone who could give a definitive answer. Having read it at some point myself, I can vouch for Geometry Revisited. Introduction to Geometry is an advanced book and presumes fairly high familiarity already. Paperback , pages.

Which of these two books should I read first? Starting with simple geometric figures triangle, lines, circle and their properties, the volume advances to higher problems and figures in a manner that is convenient for the student and also whets his appetite. For example, the whole “world” of computational geometry came on the scene after Coexeter’s book. This is not because I expect it to be less reachable than the other chapters, but I wanted to postpone projective geometry until I had pursued some other paths for awhile.
The book is rich in remarkable facts and thereby is very effective in promoting the significance and the value of geometry in mathematical teaching, a promotion which is very necessary in view of today’s predominance of set theory, analysis and algebra on the school and university level, and which deserves the skillful hand of distinguished scholars.
