We keep picking it up to re-read during TV commercials, in waiting rooms, etc. The Q/A format lends itself well to browsing and short periods of reading.
Of course, the title is marketing; a more accurate title might be '101 Interesting Math Questions Answered', but that is not as compelling.
I received the product for free in exchange for my honest review, all opinions are my own.
