5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book for mathematicans *and* non-mathematicians
This is an excellent book that covers many areas of math. Each subject is covered in 1-4 pages making the book very easy to read, and useful to teachers as a resource for enrichment. This book may be too simple or "shallow" for some of the more serious mathematicians, but the fun feeling of the book makes up for it.

The book also includes many...

1.0 out of 5 stars not worth the money
I am onot sure why such books are written in any case.there is no flow of thought from one topic to another and it will not make an attempt to explain the concept behind.Any street walker could write such a book and it does not take a genius of theoni's kind.Very disappointed.

This is an excellent book that covers many areas of math. Each subject is covered in 1-4 pages making the book very easy to read, and useful to teachers as a resource for enrichment. This book may be too simple or "shallow" for some of the more serious mathematicians, but the fun feeling of the book makes up for it.

The book also includes many tie-ins to areas such as science, art, and other fields.
Definitely worth reading, a MUST for the library of any middle or high school math teacher.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book awakened my love for maths, 4 April 2014
This review is from: The Joy of Mathematics: Discovering Mathematics All Around You (Paperback)
I was given a copy of this book when I was 12. My usual attitude is if I have to study something, then it gets boring, but if I don't have to study it, it stays interesting. Because this book didn't really delve too deeply into each topic, it was a fun read that didn't feel like I was studying maths. I'm 31y/o now, and I think this book is still a great gift for young readers who like to learn about the world around them without the pressure from inside a classroom.
