However, I never heard much about the history of math when learning the different problems and solutions in school. Plus, this really covers so much more! Also, if you're like me the cover may appear to be a bit of a turn off with those scary problems and examples illustrated on the front. It just screams difficult and challenging! Although, if you want to learn where it all started and how it became than this is the book for you! Plus, you may just take on those challenging problems and solve them with ease!
One thing I do like is the history with well-known players that created these math problems, and I do enjoy math so to get a huge detailed book on everything mathematics, it's just wonderful! This is something I will be holding onto for a long time. A great reference book, whenever I need a refresher and want to learn or understand something. It's not like a dictionary with just definitions but instead, it's packed with details, history, and illustrations of the actual math in action! Also, it's small size shouldn't fool anyone, this is packed with knowledge that is just incredible! Honestly, this is one of the best books on math I've ever read! I would highly recommend this to anybody who wants to read or learn more about math. You may just learn something new, I know I'm gaining more knowledge than ever before!
