The articles varied greatly in degree of difficulty and in degree of interest. Worth reading, but I skipped some articles.

The Freeman Dyson piece is great. The Carlo Celucci piece is awful (but only from the readability, coherency, enjoyability, and correctness standpoints). The others that I read are somewhere in between, but mostly worth reading. This book is on standby until December since I left it with someone I won't see for 6 months.

A mixed quality of short essays on mathematics. Of interest to the mathematically inclined only.
