Mathematical Omnibus: Thirty Lectures on Classic Mathematics
by Dmitry Fuchs, Sergei Tabachnikov
Publisher: American Mathematical Society 2007
Number of pages: 465
This book will be of interest to anyone who likes mathematics, from high school students to accomplished researchers. We do not promise an easy ride: the majority of results are proved, and it will take a considerable effort from the reader to follow the details of the arguments. By this book we hope to make a modest contribution to the continuation of the mathematical culture.

The goal of this work is to try to find the most general solution to many popular puzzles for which we normally heard only the particular problem. These mathematical puzzles often require specialized knowledge in some branch of Mathematics.

The aim has been to illustrate the use of mathematics in constructing diagrams; in measuring areas, volumes, strengths of materials ; in calculating latitudes and longitudes on the earth's surface ; and in solving similar problems.

This text is intended for a course introducing the idea of mathematical discovery, especially to students who may not be particularly enthused about mathematics as yet. The students could actually participate in the discovery of mathematics.

Anyone open to the idea of looking through a popular book on mathematics should be able to get on with this one. It contains pieces of technical mathematics; these can all be skipped without prejudice to the rest, and a coherent story will remain.
