I suggest you revisit Geometry Revisited after you have done some amount of study and then perhaps take a shot at Introduction to Geometry. This is not because I expect it to be less reachable than the other chapters, but I wanted to This is a special book for me: If you are planning to self study and are just beginning geometry, I would recommend neither at this stage.

Joseph Malkevitch 4, 11 I suggest you revisit Geometry Revisited after you have done some amount of study and then perhaps take a shot at Introduction to Geometry. This is not because I expect it to be less reachable than the other chapters, but I wanted to This is a special revlsited for revisitted From every thing I know about him, this book, written later in his own career, was not written for personal advancement, but for love of the subject and desire to communicate, but without pulling even one single punch there is no royal road to geometry.
Starting with reviskted geometric figures triangle, lines, circle and their properties, the volume advances to higher problems and figures in a manner that is convenient for the student and also whets his appetite.
An advantage in this recruiting endeavor is the high degree of visualizability of geometry, the easy comprehensibility of its problems and interesting theorems, and the challenge emanating from these problems to occupy oneself with their solutions.
Zachary Price rated it it was amazing Oct 12, Livio Fetahu rated it it was amazing Jul 31, The book is rich in remarkable facts and thereby is very effective in promoting the significance and the value of geometry in mathematical teaching, a promotion which is very necessary gwometry view of today's predominance of set theory, analysis and algebra on the school and university level, and which deserves the skillful hand of distinguished scholars.
Geometry Revisited - H. S. M. Coxeter, Samuel L. Greitzer - Google Books
If you are talking about " Introduction to Geometry " by Coxeter and " Geometry Revisited " by Coxeter and Greitzer, the consensus seems to be that both of them are pretty advanced, but "Introduction to Geometry" is significantly more so, while "Geometry Revisited" is closer to something 'right after high school geometry class,' so I guess you should start with the latter assuming you do have some geometry knowledge already.
If your goal is to get a sense of what different kinds of cooxeter, techniques, and concepts geometry has evolved to deal with, Introduction to Geometry is a "dated" but somewhat comprehensive choice.
Geometry Revisited is much more elementary, aimed at high-school teachers and bright high-school students or college frosh. Jean Claude rated it really liked it Oct 13, He was foremost in his time, and he was also genuinely vested in finding a way to communicate to as large an audience as possible.

Geometry Revisited by H. Is one of them more advanced than the other? Geometry Revisited has a much narrower domain of content than an Introduction to Geometry.
