This is a neat little book for those who want a pretty nice overview of what mathematics is about, more or less.

Nobody can give a detailed survey of mathematics in such a small book, but I guess it's a good starting point for those who want to look for new interesting topics. Oh, and I really liked the way in which most of these topics are summarized, it's not that easy to distil whole branches to several sentences! ...more

Some of it are regurgitations of definitions from analysis and topology textbooks that won't be intelligible to the lay reader without context, but some of it are really brilliant or sufficient demonstrations or visualizations of key concepts or theorems.

Trying to shore up my pathetic math knowledge for trivia!

This book was just what I needed, for about 100 pages. Each page of this book explains a concept (certain types of numbers, theorems, concepts) and the first half was very useful. The second half was higher level maths and might be a good review for someone who wants to remember math from previous courses, but for myself, at a certain point, it was hard for me to follow the logic and a multiple page explanation for a concept would have bee ...more

This book doesn't cover everything, but it touches on topics that are covered across the entirety of one's education, from elementary to grad school. They have number theory, set theory, topology, abstract geometry, calculus, and so much more.

An absolutely amazing tour of maths today. ...more

The only use I can think of for this book is as a quick refresher for someone who already knows the topics at hand - as long as they remember to go elsewhere for the actual details.

For a similar (albeit less technical) but IMO better book, ...more

Me and math don't get along, though we really should unfortunately this is not the book to enlighten me further.

Clear examples, if not always easy ones.

Well written and interesting.

Unfortunately not suitable for a noob. ...more
