This covers many of the same topics as other books on transformation geometry (for example, the one by Duzhin and Chebotarevsky in the AMS "Student Mathematical Library" series), but it is squarely in the category of textbooks for a course for future high school teachers. It is traditional in almost every way: its notation, expository style, selection of exercises, use of the pronoun "he" to refer to the reader, and so on. Interesting material, but presented in a rather dry manner.
