The tendency to select the problems and illustrations of mathematics mostly from the scientific and commercial activities of today, is one with which the writer is in accord. Moreover, amusement is one of the fields of applied mathematics.
by Edwin A. Abbot - Seeley and Co.
The book gives some accessible and charming explanations of geometry and physics for the curious non-mathematician. Flatland imagines a two-dimensional world inhabited by sentient geometric shapes who think their planar world is all there is.

This book is ideal for students who need a little push to get motivated, and also great for scientists and those in the math community that like to be in-the-know on relevant and current topics. Perfect as an accompaniment to any science class.

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.
