    1. Not exactly what I was looking for. Heavily directed toward girls and has self esteem tips inside?! Could have and should have covered more about geometry and less about boys!


    2. *WarningI got a little ranty towards the end.This was an extreme challenge for me to read as Geometry is my least favorite of the math subjects. Part of my reason for reading this was to find new and interesting ways to wrap my head around the concepts. I did get some new ways to help with proofs. Using "ifens" to create the links needed will help greatly when trying to teach proofs. I also came out with a better understanding of indirect proofs. My struggle appeared probably a third of the way [...]


    3. Danica McKellar, actor (The Wonder Years) and mathematician, gives geometry a unique feminine spin in this must-have math reference book. In addition to being a rock solid resource for struggling geometry students, McKellar’s goal seems to be to help readers see the value of geometry in their everyday lives. To achieve this, she uses objects and situations from teen girls’ lives—like lipstick, crushes, and shopping—to illustrate various concepts. Emphasizing the benefits of detuctive rea [...]


    4. Actress and mathematician Danica McKellar is best known to me as Winnie Cooper on The Wonder Years TV show. Bright and pretty, but very elusive for the Kevin Arnold character.Danica has written several books intended to get girls and women interested in science and mathematics. In this book, Ms. McKellar takes on Geometry specifically. Loaded with circles and triangles, the book includes many theorems and their proofs, in an easy-to-understand format that served as a refresher on my own high sch [...]


    5. Very helpful. I was able to relearn geometry in order to help my daughter with her homework. Between this book, Khan Academy and YouTube, I learned what I needed. Danica has a great way of explaining concepts, and of reminding you of underlying concepts that she explained in previous chapters. The format of this book was quite appealing. I don't think my 16 year old had as much patience to learn from Danica as I did, but having her read a small excerpt explanation worked when I could not verbali [...]


    6. If only I had this book available to me when I was actually taking math classes in high school. The topics were addressed at a level that made them comprehensible and paralleled them with ideas that had relevance to the average young lady. I especially liked that there were examples with answers to check your understanding and work. This book and the others by Danica would be on my list of recommendations for anyone seeking help with comprehending basic mathematics.


    7. I'll be perfectly honest, I'm marking this as read though I admittedly only made it about halfway. I enjoyed geometry in high school, and when I saw this for $1, I thought why not? The author does a great job explaining the concepts, but as a grown women, the silly girlishness got to me eventually. I can see teenage girls who don't love math loving this book though.


    8. Danica is a genius and the means in which she explores and exposes the geometric concepts is very plain and helpful. I love the fun way she introduces the complex notions with fun real-life scenarios that will peak learners interests. Fantastic read that could aid students from high school through college level.


    9. I love this series because it relates many topics teenage girls go through with math subjects that will interest you. This series has helped me with advancing in harder geometric problems and relate to problems I use everyday.
