As a philosophy undergrad and someone who already took a few classes in math, including discrete mathematics (a class on proofs), I found this too simple and dry. Read full review

absolute must read for anyone going to school.
answered the biggest question I had while in school "what is Math for anyway?"
knowing that Math is simply "pattern recognition" opened up a world of excitement and tolerance for learning concepts that were difficult. I weep that I did not have this realization when I was in grade school.
Thank you Jerry!
