How could you do better for $12?
I'm getting a copy of Quadrivium too. So should you.
The overall construction and design is an epitome of the eclectic qualities that define the Wooden Book series.
The material that is presented is targeted towards those that are reflective and assumes one is prepared to ponder ideas and "play" with them. However, you don't need to be a
graduate student in mathematics to understand the material. It is very accessible to a general reader, and serves as a good intro to the subjects in preparation for further study. Even if you don't plan on actually studying these subjects, it is still an interesting book to have and will leave its readers amazed in awe of our beautifully complex universe.
Beyond that, however, some of the text in the right hand illustration pages is very hard to read. Also, the cartoon script that is used is even harder to read. The publisher should seriously consider improving the legibility of these parts of the book.
There's not much like this out there. If the illustrations that were lacking could be cleaned up/redone in a better manner, I'd have no problem with this book. I haven't the heart to give it a four though, as it's very useful a guide. I'd recommend this to anyone.
It's around 400 pages of beautiful, wonderful natural science and math. :)
