What an incredible collection of mathematical brain candy. I discovered hexaflexagons from YouTube user ViHart this past school year. I showed the videos to my math classes, and they were hooked. Getting to read the original essay that introduced hexaflexagons to the general public was a joy. There is so much material in this little volume (quite a bit of it genuinely challenging for me, and my degree is in mathematics!) that I'm sure I will return to it again and again.
