Not a math major, but loved all the information on the different subjects of mathematics that was available. Although it's no substitute for actually learning the material in a classroom, this book will answer plenty of questions that young algebra, geometry, or calculus students may have.

Mostly I was just unimpressed. The explanations of math concepts weren't great; what the book did do well was explain the history of mathematics in a very interesting and accessible way.
