Flavors of Geometry is a collection of lectures on four geometrically-influenced fields of mathematics that have experienced great development in recent years. It presents chapters by masters in their fields on hyperbolic geometry, dynamics in several complex variables, convex geometry, and volume estimation. Each lecture begins with a discussion of elementary concepts, examines the highlights of the field, and concludes with a look at more advanced material. The style and presentation of the chapters are clear and accessible, and many of the lectures are richly illustrated. The book includes bibiliographies and indexes to encourage further reading. It will be an influential resource for graduate students and advanced undergraduates in mathematics.
