In this work about a land of two dimensions we have at once social satire, as pointed today as when it was written, and insights into theoretical science. The author, posing as a square inhabitant of Flatland, first describes his country. Then he tells of his visions of Lineland and Pointland, his trip to Spaceland, and his fate when he preaches the Third dimension in Flatland.

After a long time hearing about the 2 dimentional world book, I finally decided to reference the comments and read the book. I certainly was not what I expected. This book can be as simply entertaining a read or as deep and philosophical a read as you put into it. The basic ideas a hard to miss, but a little enlightenment can be found when read to the conclusion.
