Well written, broad in scope, & rich in detail,
This review is from: The Pleasures of Counting (Paperback)
A great book exploring mathematics as a living & exciting subject. A sort of cross between a pop-science book & a textbook.
Be warned: It takes no prisoners. You don't need any mathematical background to begin it. But you must be willing to do maths if you're going to get the most from this book.
