The book is a thrilling journey in the wide (wild) world of geometry, instructive and sometimes illuminating, spanning an uncredible amount of concepts and subjects, enriched by splendid figures But, but, by no means "easy".Cited by: Geometry and the Imagination. Suitable for beginners and experienced mathematicians, this book begins with examples of the simplest curves and surfaces, including thread constructions of certain quadrics and other surfaces/5.

Geometry helps children explore both the outward world, and the inner human world. It helps them develop spacial harmony, and their analytical thinking. This comprehensive book has sections on Pre-Geometry, First Lessons, Pentagon and Pentagram, The Four Rules of Arithmetic, The Five Regular Solids, The Conic Sections, and Projective Geometry.5/5(2).

Description of the book "Geometry and the Imagination": This remarkable book has endured as a true masterpiece of mathematical exposition. There are few mathematics books that are still so widely read and continue to have so much to offer - even after more than half a century has passed.

The book is overflowing with mathematical ideas, which are always explained clearly and elegantly, and above all, with penetrating insight.

It is a joy to read, both for beginners and experienced mathematicians. Geometry and the Imagination is full of interesting facts, many of which you wish you had known before. Geometry and the Imagination is a mathematics book, written at the popular level by a great mathematician and a younger colleague, but without condescension to the intended audience.

Although richly illustrated with over pictures, it is not an easy read — the pages are densely packed with information.

I have some 47 books in the geometry section of my shelves. If I had to discard 40 of these, Geometry and the Imagination would be among the 7 remaining. Geometry is the study of relationships between shapes, and this book helps you see how shapes fit together.

Ultimately, you must make the connections in your mind using your mind's eye/5(12). As a reader of this book, I can say that the key words are "visual imagination" and "enjoyment of mathematics". The purpose described by Hilbert is completely (and excellently) achieved.
