This is a gentle introduction to math that's worth learning (as opposed to high school math). You won't get this in school, perhaps because your teachers don't know it. What makes this book stand out is that it helps you to see what a mathematican actually does; it helps you understand the process of studying examples and generalizing (again, unlike high school math).Was this review helpful?

This book presents some very fundamental yet deep mathematical concepts in a friendly way. It strongly presents both practical and theoretical aspects of mathematics. I first read this book in my early teens and I fell in love with it. I read it twice more over the next decade. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who has a hunger for mathematics.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
