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!

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.

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.

Yes, there is a difference between wanting to learn *about maths* to *memorizing formulae* non-stop :p Ugh
