Format: Paperback
A superb collection of classical geometrical results. Each therem is stated, its historical significance discussed, if there are any subtle points, they are mentioned, its relation to other theorems is also discussed. Many of the results presented are mostly forgotten after the invention of co-ordinate geometry by Descartes, but with the help of this book, the reader can get the feel of geometry the way it was in Pappus's time. For a book of this size, it really achives a lot

Format: Paperback
I was asked to enrich a school geometry course. Not much came off the top of my head. After discovering this book, I had so many leads I can enrich for years! It gave an insight into every topic covered in the standard course. It adds so much for those who want to teach more than just a method to get an answer.

This book is full of wonderful theorems and other facts about geometry. But don't miss an equally wonderful book of his - The Penguin Dictionary of Curious and Interesting Numbers. When I semi-retired several years ago, I gave away many of my math books, but I would not part with these two.
