Mathematics 1001: Absolutely Everything That Matters in Mathematics in 1001 Bite-Sized Explanations
It's not that anyone will believe me, but this was an interesting and fun read. I say this as someone who doesn't have a math degree or a career in a related discipline (statisticians, for example). There's a very well-balanced combination of history of mathematical thought and explanation of concepts that I wasn't expecting the author to be able to hit. It reads well straight through, and some entries build on those immediately preceding them. I'd like a copy to keep around as a reference, but it would be more for curiosity than use.
