Abstract

This is a review of a book that sets itself the goal of celebrating “the best of geometry in all its simplicity, economy and elegance". It does this by collecting together more than 50 articles published in the Mathematical Gazette and Mathematics in School over the past 100 years. With contributors including a Nobel Laureate and a Pulitzer Prize winner all sharing their love of geometry, this book impresses from a first look and never fails to amaze, entertain, educate and inform.
