Beyond the Third Dimension: Geometry, Computer Graphics, and Higher Dimensions
This work investigates ways of picturing and understanding dimensions below and above our own. What would a two-dimensional universe be like? How can we even attempt to picture objects of four, five or six dimensions? Such are the questions examined in this text.

Review: Beyond the Third DimensionUser Review - Paul Bialek - Goodreads
This is an excellent introduction to the 4th dimension (and the 5th). It's a little difficult to follow in places, but in general readable and interesting. I will definitely use this as a resource when I teach college-level geometry courses. Read full review
Review: Beyond the Third DimensionUser Review - Kazuo - Goodreads
A nice and very accessible introduction to higher dimensions. There are plenty of computer-generated graphics to feed the intuition, and I particularly liked a section on representing sets of data in more than three dimensions. Read full review
