review 1: Loved it. I am no mathematician, but this book had me captivated from page one. I wish I would have had math presented to me in this manner when I was in school - I might have actually cared a little more about it!

Honestly, I am not a math person, but I found myself amazed over and over again as I read through this book.

... moreh other people in many diverse fields, I really enjoyed them.
