"Math Geek may be the first math book ever to explicitly welcome 'geeks' and 'nerds.' Rosen makes [math] enticing to beginners by writing in a relaxed conversational style, assuming little math knowledge, and relating the math to pop culture and ordinary events. [Readers] will be on their way to becoming the best kind of geek or nerd, the kind that our society needs." --The Los Angeles Review of Books
"Rosen provides a unique and interesting look at the beauty of mathematics without asking readers to delve into intimidating, mathematics-laden formulas." --National Council of Teachers of Mathematics

" I received you book. It is really interesting. I like how you talk about different things! I read the Lego part is page 55 and the other parts too. I liked the page that talked about - How many times can you fold a sheet of paper?, 57 times page 148. Thank you so much for the book!! "
