This book helps readers develop geometric intuition and cultivate geometric problem solving abilities. They'll learn to clarify the problem (and make definitions), solve simpler and related problems, gather and organize data, find patterns, draw pictures, make guesses, formulate and prove conjectures, find counter-examples, generalize and ask more questions and pose new problems.
