A very short read, but an absolute powerhouse of deductive conciseness. The style is archaic, and it does not help that there are some redundancies in a few propositions and proofs. Nevertheless, his style is repetitive so a quick trip to your familiar dictionary should get you set for optimal understanding. The propositions center on basic geometry and the Pythagorean theorem; so you'll have to go on to Euclid's later works for my favorite books - prime and perfect numbers.

Euclid (Ancient Greek: Εὐκλείδης Eukleidēs -- "Good Glory", ca. 365-275 BC) also known as Euclid of Alexandria, was a Greek mathematician, often referred to as the "Father of Geometry". He was active in Alexandria during the reign of Ptolemy I (323–283 BC). His Stoicheia (Elements) is a 13-volume exploration all corners of mathematics, based on the works of, inter alia, Aristotle, Eudoxus of Cnidu ...more
