4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By B. Johnson on February 10, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had Pedoe as a prof. at the University of Minnesota. His calm musings about mathematics in everyday life predate the wonderful books by John Allen Paulos and are easily as good. Each chapter presents a dissection of popular thinking on topics from randomness to topology. This book is available at a remarkably low price, well worth the full price.

One note. The binding is adequate at best. I have worked my copies hard and have just bought a third.
