An Invitation to Mathematics
by

Publisher: H. Holt and Company
Number of pages: 453

Description:
Mankind may be in a better position to deal with the baffling problems which confront it in the modern world if an understanding of mathematics were the rule rather than the exception. The author's aim is to give a reader who has but little knowledge of the technique of mathematics, an insight into the character of at least some of the important questions with which mathematics is concerned, to acquaint him with some of its methods, to lead him to recognize its intimate relation to human experience and to bring him to an appreciation of its unique beauty.
