From the reviews of the French edition: "This is a rich and useful volume. The material it treats has relevance well beyond the theory of Lie groups and algebras, ranging from the geometry of regular polytopes and paving problems to current work on finite simple groups having a (B,N)-pair structure, or 'Tits systems'". --G.B. Seligman in MathReviews.
