This book gives very detailed information about mathematics related matter. One can use this forever without having to refer to any other books. Very sad that this is out-of-print. Absence simply makes the heart grows fonder, I've fallen in love with you, The VNR Concise Encyclopedia.

I first saw this book in 2001, in a quaint little bookshop in the Old City (Knoxville), when I was hunting for the first edition of a particular classic.

After spending a few minutes flipping through the pages, I quickly realized its value and purchased the book for $50 (less than one-third the price of the required college text).

The "VNR Concise Encyclopedia of Mathematics" is a treasure trove of information, a well organized reference with to-the-point explanations and beautiful color diagrams.

My professor tried (unsuccessfully) to acquire this book and this is the second copy I purchased (for my professor).

I bought a copy of this great book at a local bookstore here in Reykjavik Iceland when I attended Highschool 30 years ago in 1981. It has always had a prime space in m ybookshelf and through the years I have read a lot in it. Now my daughter is graduating from highscool and she has lerned to love this book. She wants to give a graduation gift to a friend and this book is the choise number one. Therefore there was no doupt in our minds to buy another copy when we found it on Amazon. The book we got looks like new and we are very happy.

This book is amazing. With clear illustrations and very logical proofs, it can help someone like me who never took geometry (I took my GED test in Washington State back when it required very little math) understand the essentials and do well in Trigonometry. This book is an essential for someone attempting to understand every step of the calculations they are performing, and understanding negates the need for memorization! :D
