4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Tim Ruffles on 22 Aug. 2011
Format: Paperback
I really can't praise this book more. I'm currently studying maths at the Open University, and this book adds colour and depth to the subject. The examples and discussions give you an understanding that feels like it'll stick around, rather than fading in a few weeks. I found myself diving into quite obscure (for practical purposes) ideas - number theory was one I'd never before found intriguing.

It's fairly pricey, but if you're trying to study and find maintaining or interest tricky it's cheaper than the time you'll otherwise waste.

Once I've got through it I'll come back and say more. I may be a much older man by the time I've managed that, but I'll be a wiser one :)

Lots of insight for a non-mathematician 2 Feb. 2014
By Luigi Fatori - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although I use math extensively in my lectures, I am not a mathematician. Often engineers see mathematics simply as a toolbox. This book can really change this viewpoint. Although sometimes the author advances a bit too slowly on certain topics, the overall outcome is a nice "full of insight" view of major themes in higher Mathematics. In this respect the author has successfully achieved what is promised in the title. I strongly recommend this book for those who teach mathematics at high-school or college, especially for future engineers.
