Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions is an 1884 satirical novella by the English schoolmaster Edwin Abbott Abbott. Writing pseudonymously as "A Square", Abbott used the fictional two-dimensional world of Flatland to offer pointed observations on the social hierarchy of Victorian culture. However, the novella's more enduring contribution is its examination of dimensions.

I discovered this book in High School and it almost made me want to take more Math. I always did like the word problems.

It's nice to see a Public Domain digital book with attention to attractive ebook design.
