Geometry Revisited by H.S.M. Coxeter
Among the many beautiful and nontrivial theorems in geometry found in Geometry Revisited are the theorems of Ceva, Menelaus, Pappus, Desargues, Pascal, and Brianchon. A nice proof is given of Morley’s remarkable theorem on angle trisectors.
The transformational point of view is emphasized: Many fascinating properties of circles, triangles, quadrilaterals, and conics are developed. Paperbackpages.

This is a special book for me: Late in life it helped me to rediscover math. 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: This is not because I expect it to be less reachable than the other chapters, but I wanted to postpone projective geometry until I had pursued some other paths for awhile.
Some of them are far from easy. But in the hints you are given just enough information to put it together yourself, usually. As a note however, for some of the more difficult ones I had assistance from PhD students who found them interesting, and for some of those questions, certain aspects raised issues that I never found anyone who could give a definitive answer.
Coxeter is, in my opinion, in a special category of mathematician. 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. 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.
I wrote the following inscription in my copy: To whomever discovers and reads this book May it do the same for another.
