Many fascinating properties of circles, triangles, quadrilaterals, and conics are developed.
Starting with simple geometric figures triangle, lines, circle and their properties, the volume advances to higher problems and figures in a manner that is convenient for the student and also whets his appetite.

Functions and Graphs Dover Books on Mathematics. Geometry Revisited is much more elementary, aimed at high-school teachers and bright high-school students or college frosh.
As a note however, for some of the more difficult ones I had assistance from PhD students who found them interesting, and for some of those questions, certain aspects raised issues that I never found anyone who could give a definitive answer.

The always original developments use very simple tools theorems of Ceva and Menelaos and soon proceed to higher configurations theorems of Pascal and Brianchon on the circle.
Paul Vittay rated it it was amazing Sep 26, This is not because I expect it to be less reachable than the other chapters, but I wanted to postpone projective geometry until I had pursued some other paths for awhile.

If you are talking about ” Introduction to Geometry ” by Coxeter and ” Geometry Revisited ” by Coxeter and Greitzer, the consensus seems to be that both of them are pretty advanced, but “Introduction to Geometry” is significantly more so, while “Geometry Revisited” is closer to something ‘right after high school geometry class,’ so I guess you should start with the latter assuming you do have some geometry knowledge already.
I’m planning to use them to self-study geometry.
