Product description

Review

"A fascinating look at the geometrical. While this may not be a 'read on the beach' novel, it would prove to be an indispensible classroom companion for those wading into the fascinating subject for the first time."
- Astro Guyz

"A joyously nerdy celebration of the history of geometry and trigonometry, exploring the dozens and dozens of curiosities sitting just beneath the surface of a seemingly ordinary triangle…. By no means a casual read, The Secrets of Triangles is nonetheless worth a look, if only to blow your mind."
- Sacramento/San Francisco Book Review

"Any science or math holding, especially those catering to lay readers, will find this a winner!"
- Midwest Book Review
