Geometry Revisited – H. S. M. Coxeter, Samuel L. Greitzer – Google Books

The book is rich in remarkable facts and thereby is very effective in promoting the significance and the value of geometry in mathematical teaching, a promotion which is very necessary in view of today’s predominance of set theory, analysis and algebra on the school and university level, and which deserves the skillful hand of distinguished scholars. This book gives a clear idea about transformation geometry and inversive geometry.
