8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Bobby Poon (bobbypwh@hotmail.com) on July 13, 1999
Ross Honsberger presents the articles of modern euclidean geometric properties in a way that is easy to follow and understand. The method of proofs and development of ideas illustrate different solving strategies which is valuable for self-studying young students. With the help of simple diagrams, I found no difficulties in understanding the articles. Problems are well-graded with solutions are well-presented at the back. A MUST-READ book for students participating maths contest!

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Charles Ashbacher HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 22, 2000
Geometry is such a sweet science and this book is a honeypot. Ross Honsberger is one of the best in creating crafty, delightful problems. In reading this book, you will be amazed at how hard the problems appear when stated and how simple and elegant the proofs are.
Some topics are relatively obscure. I am sure that Honsberger is quite correct in stating that few modern mathematicians have heard of the symmedian point of a triangle. I certainly had not. However, the level of the material is such that even teachers of high school geometry will be able to find some suitable exercises. College instructors will find it essential. Problems are given at the end of each chapter and detailed solutions are included in an appendix.
It is hard to read this book and not understand why the Greeks were so captivated by geometry. Properly presented, as is done here, it is addictive.

Had to buy this book for my Geometry class. It was delivered quickly. Unfortunately we didn't even use it in class but it's still a great resource!
