The book assumes minimal background in mathematics.
The problems are not challenging enough to give you a real skill in all of these geometries, although they do become more challenging in later chapters.
Despite these limitations, Brannan et al. is a good and enjoyable book for anyone from high school through first-year graduate level in mathematics.
I am a physicist and wish I had had a good undergraduate class in geometry to lay the visual foundation for much of the rest of the undergraduate math I took. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Barbara Herrington
a class i took used this book, i sold the book after the class ended, for $70, but i'm looking for an opportunity to buy one back in a few years when the price goes down, so it... Read morePublished on August 17, 2011 by another one of those guys
The book presents clearly several geometries in the spirit of Kleinean unifying view of geometry. It begins with a recapitulation of many important facts on conic sections, since... Read morePublished on August 3, 2010 by avniu
I have purchased and worked through several geometry books in the past year. This is, by far, the best one I've come across. It is modern, it is fun, and it is enlightening. Read morePublished on January 25, 2009 by J. Wrenholt
It is a beautiful book to support University course
"Foundations of geometry" for undergraduate students.
