This hardback book is in very good condition. The cover is slightly faded on and near the spine and the corners are lightly bumped (see image), and there is a sticker at the base of the spine marking the book as "used", but otherwise the cover is in very good condition with little general wear. Internally there is a school stamp inked on the inside of the front cover and one page has been dog-eared, but otherwise the pages are in excellent condition - clean, tight and unmarked, with little sign of use.
Jacobs' highly successful, distinctive text was revised on the basis of users' comments and ten years of classroom experience - perfecting an already acclaimed approach to teaching geometry. "...the book concentrates on making the formal treatment of geometry both attractive and accessible..." The Mathematical Gazette Supplements: Teacher's Guide/Test Masters/Transparency Masters
"Mr. Jacobs did an amazing job in writing this geometry book. Although there are many problems to do and the task may seem daunting, every problem counted--providing a thorough review of the subject. At the start of almost every lesson, there is an analogy relating the subject to reality. This has proven to be quite useful. Occasionally there are excerpts of comics, relatable to the topic, to add a touch humor. Over all, the book has a wonderful balance between the amount of problems and the quality of the problems. I would highly reccommend this book to any person who either wishes to review geometry or simply is taking it for the first time (such as I did as a homeschooler). Warning: If the text isn't read carefully, doing the problems will not be easy. Basically, you can't get away with skimming. Enjoy!"
"Great text, very clear, no fluff, illustrations fun. I am using this without the teacher's guide as I am comfortable enough with geometry to correct the problems for which there are no answers in the back of the book (and have a student who I can trust not to look) but if you homeschool and want more support, there are better versions of Jacobs for you. This is the best text I have seen yet"
"I like that this book presents geometry in a humorous fashion, and that its "old-school" style, rather than the touchy-feeling new way that math is taught."
