Man, I used to consider myself decently intelligent when it came to math, but I'm telling you, some of these mathy books I've read this year and last year are making me feel REALLY stupid. I understood about 1/2 of this book, and really *got* it; the other 1/2 went over my head. :( (But I'm consoling myself by saying that the fact that I'm still willing to read them means that I really am still a math geek.) However, the writing is good, the diagrams are good, and I think the authors did a good job of explaining the concepts, even if *I* didn't 100% understand them.
