5.0 von 5 Sternen Step into the shoes of a mathematician, 18. April 1999
Von 
I've always had a like-hate relationship with math; I didn't do well in it in college, but I've long been fascinated by physics. There are many books for the lay person about the cutting edge in physics; books like that are harder to find in the world of mathematics.
But Keith Devlin has done it. He surely captured me near the beginning when he described mathematics as the study of patterns; a wonderful description that starts to get at why mathematics seems to be the language underlying the physical universe.
This was not an easy book for a slightly math-averse person, but Devlin's explanations were always clear, and more importantly, always gave a sense of context of what he was discussing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Right Brain Joins Party, 27. Juni 2000
By the time you get to exactly page 107 and see the logic of differential calculus hanging as beautifully as "Water Lilies", you might want to thank and slap those teachers who did in fact teach you mathematics (thanks!), but who did not give you even a little of the reason behind the math -- the fundamental problems or quests that give rise to mathematics.
All of this adds context that makes learning a big rush. It's possible that mathematics would not be so patently daunting if it were approached with deeper context instead of the abstraction beginning in chapter 1 of many school texts. This seems to be Mr. Devlin's approach in the book -- helping the reader appreciate then embrace the abstraction that is prerequisite for opening the mind's eye.
Both the author's and his reviewer's constant usage of terms such as power, elegance and simplicity is clearly in order. It's not just a left-brain affair and Mr. Devlin's book is a powerful exposition on that, especially as he details the creative cognitive leaps by many great minds over the course of thousands of years.
For the record, I don't mean to go slapping anybody - I just got happy; that's all.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mustererkennnung, 8. März 2015
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Language of Mathematics: Making the Invisible Visible (Taschenbuch)
Ähnlich gut wie Thimothy Gowers behandelt es alle Themen. Es bleibt in vielem natürlich nur an der absoluten Oberfläche, aber das Ziel ist ein Bild vom Muster der Mathematik abzubilden und das ist gelungen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Selten gute Darstellung der gesamten Mathematik, 22. Mai 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Language of Mathematics: Making the Invisible Visible (Taschenbuch)
Devlin schafft einen derart freundlichen und klaren Zugang zur Mathematik, dass selbst der durch Schulunterricht arg Geschädigte Freude an diesen Fach bekommen kann.
