It is not for the faint hearted though. You have to have an interest in maths to start with otherwise you get completely lost. Some of the explanations could be clearer as well, for example when the author talks about 'solving' the equations, he usually forgets to tell us for what. As someone who has solved equations before but is not familiar with many of the physics equations, it would make my life a lot easier if I knew. But worth reading nevertheless, it shows how maths underpins everthing that surrounds us, useful lesson to remember when your child struggles with the subject.

This book you'll need to have at least A level Further Maths to understand most of it.
Very interesting and informative, packed full of history of mathematics rather than numerical examples and explanations. Tests the mind reading each chapter!
This is not for the ordinary layman with GCSE level, you will be lost by page 2 of each chapter.

A really good overview of some of the most important areas of mathematics, which outlines the history of each topic, a basic view of the maths behind it and relevant applications to everyday life. Very comprehensive with some more challenging detailed explanations of in depth mathematics to interest the more mathematically able reader.

Great fun. Ranging from stuff to do with the kids on a rainy day to some chapters I am going to have to read several times. Well written and generally easy to follow to at least grasp the concepts. Something for everyone.
