Proofs could be too intuitive sometimes or lack some steps, but the main idea is to show the mathematics as science of patterns and concepts and explain unity and meaning of its concepts, which is fulfilled on whole 100%. The interesting thing was author's scepticism regarding computer-assisted proofs as too complex and not intuitive, however Stewart has left space for maneuver, telling that maybe the problem is in the increased essential complexity of things to be proved. Also, the thing I liked the most is the emphasis and explanation of connection between intuition and rigour. ...more
