From the book reviews:
“By considering a hierarchy of ‘natural’ geometrical objects … it sets out to investigate significant geometrical problems which are either unsolved or were solved only recently. … it is undoubtedly a major tour de force, and if you really want to gain an idea of where geometry is going in the 21st century, you will find plenty of exquisite material here.” (Gerry Leversha, The Mathematical Gazette, Vol. 96 (356), July, 2012)
“The book contains twelve chapters, each of them is a collection of such problems about geometric objects with more and more complexity … . The chapters are independent from each other, any of them can serve as a course. Researchers in geometry can use it as a source for further research. … the book is accessible to a wide audience of people who are interested in geometry.” (János Kincses, Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum (Szeged), Vol. 78 (1-2), 2012)
“‘Geometry Revealed’ is a massive text of 831 pages which is organized in twelve chapters and which additionally provides indices for names, subjects and symbols … throughout the author quite carefully lays out the historical perspective. … a typical chapter starts with an observation or a problem in elementary geometry. Large parts of the text are very accessible, and a reader who likes (mathematical) physics will often get something extra.” (Michael Joswig, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1232, 2012)
“The author provides the reader with an enormous amount of detailed information and thus yields deep insight into the various topics. … All in all an overwhelming book which is a must … for everyone having sufficient mathematical knowledge.” (G. Kowol, Monatshefte für Mathematik, Vol. 164 (2), October, 2011)
“The book is a very readable account of several branches of geometry, classical and modern, elementary and advanced. … Every chapter is extremely interesting and alive. … The book is rich in ideas, written in an informal style, with no formulae and no unnecessary technical details. … Every part of this book is interesting and should be accessible to a wide audience of mathematicians. … Every mathematician will experience great pleasure in reading this book.” (Athanase Papadopoulos, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2011 m)
