Geometry Books

Subject: Goemetry

I am interested to learn about geometry.  However I am having 
trouble finding an instructive book on geometry.  Do you have any 
suggestions?

Hi there! Some books by Coxeter on geometry have come highly 
recommended, as has a book called _Geometry and the Imagination_.  
I haven't really used these myself, so I'm not sure how difficult 
they are... You might also be interested in going back to Euclid's 
ELEMENTS and reading non-Euclidean geometry by Lobachevski and so 
on...

Good luck!
