This review is from: Mathematics: The New Golden Age (Penguin Science) (Paperback)
Read this book! It is a fabulous introduction to recent developments in pure maths. While Devlin does not shy away from mathematical detail he is always readable, and if you don't understand something you can always skip ahead. He covers many different areas, from fractals to prime numbers: there is sure to be something of interest to everyone! I couldn't recommend this book more highly!
