The book contains 23 chapters, each on a different mathematical subject – some practical, others less so. The writing style is clear, lively, friendly, authoritative, highly accessible and particularly captivating – overall, for me, a page turner! Sure, as a math buff, I did find several explanations/derivations extremely elementary (and unnecessary), but I’m sure that they could be useful to those who are new to the field, thus broadening the book’s readership. And these did not take anything away from my reading enjoyment. In addition, I did learn several rather interesting tidbits. Because of its diversity of topics, I believe that there should be several items in here to please just about everyone. The book’s title and subtitle have, in my opinion, been well chosen.
I thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful book, and I recommend it to seasoned math enthusiasts (even if only as an entertaining review of familiar topics) as well as those who want to learn math in a most painless and enjoyable way.
