A Mathematicians Miscellany
by J. E. Littlewood
Publisher: Methuen And Company Limited 1953
Number of pages: 152
Anyone open to the idea of looking through a popular book on mathematics should be able to get on with this one. The book contains pieces of technical mathematics, on occasion pieces that only a professional mathematician can follow; these have been included as contributing to the full picture of the moment as viewed by the professional, but they can all be skipped without prejudice to the rest, and a coherent story will remain.
