Format: Paperback
euclid knew how to express the true beauty inherrent in mathmatics with a simple logical progression. Definatly a good contrast for anyone too taken up in the numbers and rules of math, who need to really step back and understand it. Propositions 1.47, 2.9, 2.10, 3.35, and 3.36 are incredibly elegant and simple. the translation itself seems to be accurate enough, and while all of the notes seem to drag a bit in pedantry, they are useful and do not detract from Euclid's work

This was the book that got me into mathematics. After years of being afraid of the subject, I did a little digging and decided to start here, at the very beginning. I was hooked. I went through the books, proof by proof, constantly being amazed at what I was learning, and how easy it was for me to comprehend. From these books I was able to springboard into many other areas of mathematics, but I owe it all to Euclid.
T.L. Heath's translation is quite perfect, and his explanations of the proofs and the historical background he provides make him the absolute authority on the subject. This is the best translation out there, hands down.

The essence of ALL fundamental reasoning distilled into three very affordable and faithful translations...I would think giving it five stars would be an understatement, but that's as much as I can do! Definitely a must for, well, everyone.

I have been enjoying the first book of this three book series and will not get to the third volume until late spring. but upon skimming through some of the 3rd volume it also does not seem to me that it would appeal to most people. It appears difficult to wade through and I would not recommend it for anyone but math historians or someone who would like a traditional perspective on the development of solid geometry in the third century BCE. I have an interest in Electrical Engineering, and for me this provided insights into the development of Maxwell's Equations. But I maybe making obscure connections.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Prior to buying this and its companions, I had hoped to have a book, or set of volumes, presenting the Euclidian proofs. This set is an exhaustive discussion of the subject with far too much ancillary detail. It is not a handy reference work for Euclidian geometry, unless you are teaching the subject and can productively benefit from such detail. Finding the actual proofs is a challenge as they occupy a minor portion of each segment. Rather like buying a Cat tractor when you really wanted a quality shovel. If one wants to impress their friends with titles in their library, buy this set. If you want something to read and digest that you have the probability of reading past the prologue, check other titles.
