Some of it went over my head, but I learned a lot of interesting concepts to contemplate. It's books like these that make me wish that math classes in public schools could be taught more creatively and more holistically. His book testifies to the fact that mathematical concepts become discovered not through cold-hearted pragmatism and materialistic/linear causation, but through the sheer joy of building patterns and seeing how it all connects.
This book has a lot of math history and puzzles broken into delightful short chunks. Great browsing.

An amazing book, full of math puzzles, factiods, quotations, trivia, formulas, and much more.
A lot of nice problems and math facts for different levels. Will use for my math team for sure.
Lot of information to take in but it's a good read and the question/answering parts are interesting.
