I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book, especially as I've long considered myself a math-phobe. Bennett is an engaging, efficient, and persuasive writer. This book elegantly blends explanation with opinion on topics that should interest every citizen. I especially liked how each chapter started by posing a question to the reader--this was a brilliant device executed consistently well. I look forward to looking up some of Bennett's other books, both for adults and children.
