There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The text glosses over basic tasks such as "whether a point lies to the left or right of a directed line" (page 4) with the expectation that some unnamed library function will do this. For me, not so. Moreover I'd would have liked to read a geometric proof of such things. The foundations are left out, yet elsewhere they waste space to give us Pythagoras' Theorem.
Difficulty level: make sure you know some asymptotic analysis and discrete mathematics to get the best out of it, but could be read by anyone who can code i believe (although again, he'll miss a lot of beautiful mathematics)
Again, i'm very satisfied with it.
