*Editorial reviews*

Publisher Synopsis

From the reviews: "Here, readers meet a slice of geometry, intermediate between elementary Euclidean and modern algebraic, where first come the objects, extraordinary, surprising, and intriguing. By meeting and literally seeing these special objects, specifically linear configurations and various projective varieties of low dimension and low degree, undergraduates can--perhaps for the first time--really experience mathematics as a phenomenological science. ... Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty." (D. V. Feldman, Choice, Vol. 51 (2), October, 2013) "The book under review presents an introduction to projective geometry as well as some preliminary results on algebraic geometry and finite geometries. ... This is a well-illustrated, self-contained textbook on projective geometry. Both the basics and the significant facts are presented in an original manner. The book is intended for undergraduate students in mathematics and computer science." (Georgi Hristov Georgiev, Mathematical Reviews, September, 2013) "The author wanted to convey some of the fascination he feels for the subject. ... Nice figures, some in color, illustrate perspective. ... this is a nice introduction for those with an interest in geometry." (Arthur Gittleman, Computing Reviews, July, 2013) Read more...
