List of 'good' geometry textbooks
Posted:

Thanks for all your input. Below is a list of geometry textbooks that have been recommended as 'good'. These recommendations were based on the book being targeted for high school honors/college level and one that rigorously covers Euclidian geometry with the major emphasis on formal proof. I am planning on reviewing all these books and will post my biased opinion rating each book.
If you would like to add a book to the list, feel free!
Thanks, Alan Sagan
