The book has 33 "chapters" of 1-4 pages each (most are two pages) and in each a proof is suggested first (so you can try to work it out) and then reveled. Basic theorems from undergraduate linear algebra come in handy, but very little advanced knowledge is needed. A pen a paper will help on some of the proofs but most can be done just by thinking.
What makes it all especially exciting is that the proofs are useful! many suggest fun ideas for applications.
Since it's presented in little bite-sized chunks you can put it down at any moment.
I think any undergrad who has taken linear algebra, grad students and mathematics instructors and professors would enjoy this book. I couldn't help but share one or two of these little gems with my students!
