The best mathematics textbook I have ever seen, and the only one I have kept for the joy of re-reading and browsing. It's equally suitable for a high-school senior who is not really a math geek, or a junior-high student who emphatically is. It requires only rudimentary algebra, but touches on many of the interesting topics that typical high school math programs never manage to include. ( )
