The Math Book

The Math Book: From Pythagoras to the 57th Dimension, 250 Milestones in the History of Mathematics by Clifford A. Pickover.

Just found this recently published book by a well known biophysicist who I have read over the years. It is a 'coffee-table' style work, with few details. Yet is covers nicely a number of math and math related subjects since Pythagoras. Beautiful images and an easy scan. Interesting even for a person who is a long time follower of and an often user of math in his work. Recommended for kids who have a spark in this area, could further convince them that this is really interesting. I got it from the library.
