Recommends it for: Anyone interested in philosophy
Despite its title, this is NOT a math book, at least in the conventional definition of the term. It is indeed true that the subject matter of the book is indeed mathematics, but it neither teaches the reader any math nor assumes that the reader knows much math.

What is knowledge and how is it different from mere belief, and w ...more
