Give this to a curious teenager and they will fall in love with geometry. * Alex Bellos *
David Acheson has set geometry free from the confines of stuffy textbooks and lets loose its potential to surprise and delight. Theres a rich and ancient history to be found in these pages, and a future for the field that extends beyond neat (yet elegant) equations. * BBC Science Focus, Books of the Year *
This is by far the most approachable book on geometry I've ever read, and I wish it had been around in my day... if you need to learn the basics of geometry for whatever reason (there must be several reasons, surely) then this blows every known textbook on the topic out of the water... The Wonder Book of Geometry does what it does wonderfully. Acheson has done a remarkable job. * Popular Science *
Anyone who has read David's earlier books will instantly recognise his almost playful style... I highly recommend it as a marvellous source book on geometry. * Ray Huntley, Mathematics in Schools *
There is no better tour guide to the wonders of geometry than the delightful David Acheson. * Matt Parker, author of Humble Pi: A Comedy of Maths Errors and Things to Make and Do in the Fourth Dimension *
