There is more to mathematics than computational techniques! Jacobs' clear and entertaining text (which is full of cartoons, pictures, and anecdotes) inspires a love of math. Each chapter invites the reader to discover for himself the patterns and structure of a particular topic. This book helped to convert me into someone who appreciated mathematics.
I love this math text! It happens to be one of my favorite books of all time. You know, I didn't even like mathematics before I started teaching. Funny then, that after five years of doing so I would find a text book that intrigued me so much that it would become a highly prized object.
