I'm giving up for now as this book isn't what I had in mind or need right now. I did pick it up from the library on a whim hoping it would be a more in-depth historical account of Euclidean geometry.
Each chapter is very short and follows a general chronology but the voice is very conversational popular culture geek referencing. It makes for a less intimidating tone and greater accessibility.
I do plan on reading it in the future.
