I love math and frequently read math books the way some people read novels. I found this one to be very clear. An excellent introduction to a number of mathematical topics. His coverage of basic combinatorics is the clearest I have ever seen!

This book is an absolutely fantastic introduction to the basic concepts of Mathematics. I currently work as a Mathematics tutor and implement many of the techniques he uses in this book. It's surprising to see how much math-phobia really just translates to a lack of understanding of key mathematical concepts.

This book could teach an intelligent 12 year-old the fundamental concepts of algebra through calculus. The book is far more conceptual than any textbook you would ever read. The exposition is brilliantly clear and well motivated. You start with understanding the basic number systems and the fundamental rules of counting. Then you progress through basic algebra and geometry, and finally reach analytic geometry and calculus.

Connections are made between subjects in every section of the text! One thing you learn from the early chapter is again applied later on. For example, the chapter on combinations heavily influences the chapter on the binomial theorem. The author explains flawlessly how the symmetry of combinations is the driving force behind the binomial theorem!

There are many historical notes and many deep ideas and works from various authors are mentioned! I wish that textbooks like this were used in every mathematical subject! Surely, many more people would appreciate mathematics if there were...
