Review: The World of Mathematics

Användarrecension  - Hugh Chatfield - Goodreads

Not something you read cover to cover. You can dip in and out just about anywhere, First discovered this set in the local library and later purchased my own copy. Great reading in mathematics. You do't need advanced mathematics to enjoy this trio of books. Läs hela recensionen
