As a radiologist and medical physicist, I found the early chapters on early childhood development of a number sense and the later chapters on number-processing deficits experienced by brain-damaged patients and brain imaging to be a little slow and not particularly revealing, most likely due to my prior exposure to these topics through my professional training. The middle chapters that discussed how adults think about numbers and do calculations, however, were fascinating.
