An excellent read; many of the articles are intelligible to me (not a professional mathematician)
I enjoyed the 2010 edition as well and look forward to the 2012 edition and many more in the future.

I bought this book after reading the previous of the series named "The Best Writting on Mathematics 2010". Contrary to the 2010's book, "The Best Writting on Mathematics 2011" has a smaller variety. Most of the articles in it are about philosophy and history of mathematics and mathematical education. I am not in position to judge the quality of the aricles, maybe they are of excellent quality. But not being interested in those fields I found them a little borring. The mixture of the articles is not right.

I read "The Best Writting on Mathematics 2010" from cover to cover but only a few selected articles from "The Best Writting on Mathematics 2012". And I certainly will not pre-order "The Best Writting on Mathematics 2012"!
