Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello, I am searching for a geometry book, a rigorous one. I have taken a look at Moise's and Downs's book but it looked too short, I want something more advanced but keeping the focus on elemtary issues at the same time.

Thanks.

Well, the kind of geometry showed in the book I mentioned: Euclidian mainly. By the way, have you used those books? Could you tell me your experience with them?.

Thanks.

Try Euclid's Elements, from the green lion press, augmented by Hartshorne: Geometry, Euclid and beyond. I cannot think of a better source. I used those last time I taught it and I learned a lot, even after a 30 year career as a professional mathematician.

I am not familiar with the book you mention, if you could explain what you want the book for it would be easier to help. There has been a lot of development since Euclid, so for many purposes I would advise a book that includes a more modern approach.
