By John C. Martinson on January 1, 2005
Format: Hardcover
I'm currently working through it, and am finding it really good. The approach is to present geometry as an ideal axiomatic system and show how all statements flow logically from others. Although all books on geometry are supposed to do this, it's not always presented as clearly as it should be.

I feel I'm getting what I need from this book. The other book I tried was the Jurgenson text, which is a standard high school textbook, but I found it to be somewhat childish and unfocused. This book is written in a more mature and serious style, and gets right down to it. Although I'm not that far into it yet, so far it seems very good for someone interested in introducing themselves to the logically systematic groundwork of mathematics, geometry, or, as in my case, both.
