It's the finest and most enjoyable mathematics book I've encountered to date, and that's taking into account the existence of many excellent math books. Certainly among books specifically on applied mathematics, this book is uniquely valuable.
The choice of topics, sequence of presentation, level of detail, use of examples, and clarity and elegance of exposition are all outstanding. Batschelet has crafted every chapter, section, paragraph, and even sentence with meticulous care and precision in the finest Swiss tradition.
If you've already studied mathematics through calculus, differential equations, probability, linear algebra, etc., this book is an especially good resource to review it all via a single coherent book.
To illustrate how much I cherish this book, I've bought two copies -- one to read, and the other in case the first is damaged and the book goes out of print.
If you love math, buy this book. If you just have an interest in math, buy this book and read it, and you may well come to love math.
