I suppose not many people read books on mathematical equations, but if you do, I highly recommend this book!!! The author explains the concepts as clearly and simply as possible and you don't have have a degree in mathematics to follow the ideas. If you are a mathematician, the book is also excellent and you can skim through the first few chapters quickly. Simply an excellent book. I will soon be reading some of the books he suggests for further study.
