Overview

This small book, translated into English for the first time, has long been a unique place to find classical results from geometry, such as Pythagoras' theorem, the nine-point circle, Morley's triangle, and many other subjects. In addition, this book contains recent, geometric theorems which have been obtained over the past years. There are 27 independent chapters on a wide range of topics in elementary plane Euclidean geometry, at a level just beyond what is usually taught in a good high school or college geometry course. The selection of topics is intelligent, varied, and stimulating, and the author provides many thought-provoking ideas.
