Read in April, 2012

I loved this book. If I had read it in high school, I would have been a much better student. So many things were made clear by Alex Bellos' talented writing. That said, there were definitely some concepts that stretched my brain to its limits - such as different sizes of infinity.

I especially enjoyed the historical progression of math and gained a deeper appreciation for the brilliance of the early Greeks, the Indians, and the Arabs, as well as the traditional cross-cultural heroes of math and science.

If you enjoy math in its amazing beauty or just want to find out about your odds of winning big money in Vegas, this is a must read.

Kudos to Alex Bellos!
