Here's looking at Euclid,
This review is from: How to Solve it: A New Aspect of Mathematical Method (Penguin Science) (Paperback)
I have just finished an earlier edition (black cover don't know edition)- to be honest it was interesting but if you have not done your geometry you don't know how to think let alone "solve it".
As with other books that many professional mathematitians like - this is not for begginers to learn from only mature people to reminisce, or those who are not actually doing a course A level or otherwise.

I studied my math in Russia back in the 70s - and am not a math major. Yet I found this book fully 'solvable' based on 6th-10th grade geometry from my ordinary Soviet highschool. The above review makes me worry about my kid who goes to British school... I should really take a closer look at their basic math curriculum. Other than that, I recommend "I Hate Mathematics" for more basic entry and "Innumeracy" for general appreciation of the problem.

GCSE level is meaningless, no one cares about it. Other than for entry into Sixth Form. A-Level is where any serious education starts.
