In highschool we learned geometry separate from algebra, all with the same teacher. I would get 100% in geometry and failing grades in algebra. I later read in the arts and now have a PHd in psychology. I am from a family of artists and find my drawings and etchings tend towards repeated patterns and symetry. I recently started reading King of Infinite Space by Siobhen Roberts, a biography of Donald Coxeter. It is an excellent book and has rekindled a curiosity about geometry. Would you recommend I read Coxeter's books or vis there another route for someone who is interested in learning more geometry but still wanting to avoid algebre?
