Frank PratterBanks's style is entertaining but never condescending. Some of the math is pretty tough; it helps if you did well in trigonometry as well as introductory calculus and analytic geometry. It is possible to read this book without working through the math, but that would be missing the point. The author notes, "My strong hope is that this collection of mathematical stories will be interesting and helpful to people who long ago completed their formal studies.... I think this is especially true as all of us enter a new century that assuredly will place heavy emphasis on mathematics, science, and technology.
