Geometry Textbook Suggestions for Gifted Math Program?

Hi, everyone,
I wonder what you would suggest as a best textbook for a first highschoollevel geometry course for talented students? I'm trying to gather information to make a suggestion to a local mathematics program. I am aware of one program that formerly used Gene Murrow and Serge Lang's textbook Geometry (SpringerVerlag) and in recent years has used Michael Serra's textbook Discovering Geometry (Key Curriculum Press). Another textbook I have never seen, but have heard of being used at gifted magnet schools is Geometry for Enjoyment and Challenge (McDougall Littell), which has VERY MIXED reviews on Amazon.com

What do you think? If you were recommending a textbook for a class of students selected for high math ability taking a first secondarylevel geometry course, what would you recommend? What do you like about your preferred textbook?  Karl M. Bunday P.O. Box 1456, Minnetonka MN 55345 Learn in Freedom (TM) http://learninfreedom.org/ remove ".de" to email
