really liked it

I really want this one for my bookshelf. It is similiar to the The Usborne Illustrated Dictionary of Math, it is an excellent reference book, good for refreshing forgotten concepts, and brushing up on topics that you only vaguely understood in school.

This book is verbose, it is very much about explaining the concepts with a few examples (and I like the end-of-chapter quiz) rather than giving lots of repetitive questions.

I think the wordiness might be off-putting to someone afraid of maths (but maybe not).

At any rate I am buying a copy for my bookshelf.
