John Stillwell is Professor of Mathematics at the University of San Francisco. The book is extremely interesting, but there is a major problem with the book binding. Initial copy received missing text on dozens of pages scattered throughout the book-i. Returned first copy asking for a replacement, second copy promptly shipped, but received with the same problem. Second book returned asking for full refund.

This is a fine book for learning Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry. I wish it had more examples.

Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics (UTM) is a series of undergraduate-level textbooks in mathematics published by Springer-Verlag. The books in this series tend to be written at a more elementary level than the similar Graduate Texts in Mathematics series, although there is a fair amount of overlap between the two series in terms of material covered and difficulty level. The Four Pillars of Geometry.

In this book, I wish to show that geometry can be developed in four fundamentally different ways, and that all should be used if the subject is to be shown in all its splendor. Euclid-style construction and axiomatics seem the best way to start, but linear algebra smooths the later stages by replacing some tortuous arguments by simple calculations. And how can one avoid projective geometry? It not only explains why objects look the way they do; it also explains why geometry is entangled with algebra.

This book is unique in that it looks at geometry from 4 different viewpoints - Euclid-style axioms, linear algebra, projective geometry, and groups and their invariants

Approach makes the subject accessible to readers of all mathematical tastes, from the visual to the algebraic

Abundantly supplemented with figures and exercises
