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.

Vol 3 of one of the most important books in Western civilization. Too bad almost no one reads Euclid's Elements these days, except at Great Books colleges. It is much more than geometry and even if it weren't, it would still be a great book.
