The purpose of this book is to demonstrate that complex numbers and geometry can be blended together beautifully, resulting in easy proofs and natural generalizations of many theorems in plane geometrysuch as the Napoleon theorem, the PtolemyEuler theorem, the Simson theorem, and the Morley theorem. Beginning with a construction of complex numbers, readers are taken on a guided tour that includes something for everyone, even those with advanced degrees in mathematics. Yet, the entire book is accessible to a talented highschool student.The book is self containedno background in complex numbers is assumedand can be covered at a leisurely pace in a one semester course. Many of the chapters can be read independently. Over 100 exercises are included. The book would be suitable as a text for a geometry course, or for a problem solving seminar, or as enrichment for the student who wants to know more.
