One of my two favorite books of the AMS/MSRI Mathematical Circles Library. (The other is Introduction to Functional Equations: Theory and Problem-solving Strategies for Mathematical Competitions and Beyond (MSRI Mathematical Circles Library).)

It contains 12 sessions in the form of chapters (each dealing with a specific topic from mathematics), an introduction, a very interesting epilogue, an appendix explaining the notation used in the book, an appendix summarizing all abbreviations used in the book, a good bibliography, and a good index.

Each session is written by the actual presenter or by one of the editors based on the original presentation given by a presenter to the students of the Berkeley Math Circle. The editors have done great work to edit all sessions to appear uniform in format and style. The final result is an exciting book that everyone interested seriously in mathematics should read. If you curious, the topics of the sessions are: Inversion in the plane; combinatorics; Rubick's cube; number theory; about proofs (part I and part II); mathematical induction; mass point geometry; complex numbers; games with invariants; favorite problems at BMC; monovariants.

Since I have been negative in my reviews for two other books of the same series (Geometry: A Guide for Teachers (MSRI Mathematical Circles Library) and

This book is so fantastic that I can't belive it hands so many math topics but so easy to read. As a problem solving lover, I'm sure that this book is so good for other person who like problem solving and interested in math contest like math olympiad. When I was a high school student, I was eager to study math and particiated some math contest and got some math tropy. But then there were so little material to study. Now I'm a doctor but still like math-problem solving, there are so many good materials to read. Only problem solving, somtimes boring things. If you want to be a good problem solver, there must be something else. I think this book is good choice for recreation and learning problem solving skills.

Some topics are amazing like mass point geometry. Some others are fun introductions of math theory and problem solving skills.

The only thing I feel sorry is there's just Volume 1. I eargely look forward to Volume 2.
