Subject: List of 'good' geometry textbooks
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
