Very much a 'special interest' book but very good of its kind. However while the blurb suggests the reader doesn't need maths 'beyond O level', either O level went a lot further than it did in my school days, or the blurb was trying to broaden the audience under false pretences. There's a lot of maths examples here and I didn't get far with some of them! ( )
