    As a post-college member of society I've been on a mission to expand my horizons, more specifically a quest of giving second chances (particularly to things that once made me curse the heavens) thus my reading a book about math. A friend of mine suggested it and I can honestly say that no bias in the world could have made me like math...nope, either math won me over or my heart would remain stone. (I went to an arts college that did not require math classes...one of the reasons I picked it.) Friends, this book is such a great delight that I needed to share it. It's made me think about the Universe a little differently and although I may not go out and take a Trig class it certainly challenged my long held feelings on this mysterious thing called 'math.' The book is a quick read with short (but insightful) chapters and not a hint of confusing math lingo. Not once did I feel like I was being lectured at but rather a dialogue was being created between myself and the author. I felt that...

It’s an amazing read and a great way to inspire those who thought they were done with math. Perhaps it will inspire someone to re-explore math but at the very least I believe it will lead to understanding and respecting math for the beautiful part of the Universe it is.< Less
