This book is 103 total pages. Chapter 1 starts on page 12. Not much room left to cover Geometry. You are better off to spend your money on something else. A lot of free web sites with same info. The only thing essential here is the author is essentially getting paid for very little info.

I will agree that the book is too short, which makes it hard to understand all of thr concepts so it is hard to understand all of the mathematics in the book. For me, 103 pages is to short saying that it starts on page 12. So it is not to good if you were to ask me. So do not get a book an author should not earn money on.
