This is one of those rare books that makes a technical subject interesting, but not only for the nontechnical average Joe, but also for those who are very comfortable with math. So, why would someone like me, who majored in math, find another math book interesting? Because it ties together the different branches of math and brings them together in a fun way. Like tying probability to an ice cream shop. By showing how adding numbers together (Fibonacci sequence) can lead to the number e. In other words, what your high school textbook should have done.
Not all the areas held much interest for me–tricks on multiplying and adding numbers isn’t very useful when you’re going to do it on your phone anyway. But about half the book was fascinating to me. There are enough areas covered that I think anyone who had the slightest interest could find something they’d enjoy. So, even if you’re math phobic, I think you’d find something you’d like seeing from a different, even fun, way.
