5.0 out of 5 stars Constructive Criticism
This little book holds very clear and concise instructions to more geometric constructions than any other source that I have found. The book is entirely practical in nature - no proofs are offered. A truely excellent resource.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty cover but tiny diagrams
Not sure what all the excitement is about this book. I found the writing rather small and the diagrams too small & fine for comfortable viewing. I need glasses for reading these days and I needed my best ones to read this little book - particularly the diagrams - even then it was not a comfortable experience. I guess I was looking for something to help me produce...

Got this just to see what could be done with compasses. warm memories of school days and new stuff too. Good illustrations, text not impenetrable, if you like geometry and constructing stuff, have a look at this.

Not sure what all the excitement is about this book. I found the writing rather small and the diagrams too small & fine for comfortable viewing. I need glasses for reading these days and I needed my best ones to read this little book - particularly the diagrams - even then it was not a comfortable experience. I guess I was looking for something to help me produce interesting geometric designs but this seems more geared to solving classical mathematical problems. The method for approximating a spiral with a compass was interesting. The elipse too, but my father showed me a better way long ago. Perhaps this will grow on me yet (if it does, I will increase my rating).
