Some here may be interested in the publication of my book "Some Adventures in Euclidean Geometry" which is available in soft cover or as PDF download at: http://www.lulu.com/content/7622884

Description:
The book seeks to actively involve the reader in the heuristic processes of conjecturing, discovering, formulating, classifying, defining, refuting, proving, etc. within the context of Euclidean geometry. Extensive attention is also given to the classification of the quadrilaterals from the symmetry of a side-angle duality. Many examples lend themselves excellently for exploration on computer with dynamic geometry programs such as Sketchpad. The book is addressed primarily to university or college lecturers involved in the under-graduate or in-service training of high school mathematics teachers, but may also interest teachers who are looking for enrichment material, and gifted high school mathematics pupils.

It is now also available to preview on Google Books.

Regards
Michael
