What a treat!,
By A Customer
This review is from: In Code: A Mathematical Journey (Hardcover)
Sarah has written a charming, inspiring text that would be excellent reading for every secondary ed student, especially the girls! Her love of learning shines through, with just the right mix of humor and mathematics to interest and inspire the reader. Her choice to be less than rigourous with the math (she gives a website for those interested in the hard core details) makes the book accessible to a wide audience. Although the ending may be (only slightly) less than the fairy tail ending we see in the movies, she has achieved extraordinary things while keeping perspective and balance. Her story will amaze and inspire you. You go girl!
