This classic work is now available in an unabridged paperback edition. The Second Edition retains all the characterisitcs that made the first edition so popular: brilliant exposition, the flexibility permitted by relatively self-contained chapters, and broad coverage ranging from topics in the Euclidean plane, to affine geometry, projective geometry, differential geometry, and topology. The Second Edition incorporates improvements in the text and in some proofs, takes note of the solution of the 4-color map problem, and provides answers to most of the exercises.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Coverage I just bought this book and I'm pretty happy with the Geometry. I'm not too happy with the cheap binding rendering the book unreadable. It is so tightly bound even breaking the binding and 3 hole punching may not be possible.
