"A book such as this belongs in the personal library of everyone interested in learning about some of the most subtle and profound works of the human spirit."—American Scientist

"What is mathematics? Keith Devlin has answered with a magnificent panoply of all the major domains of mathematics."—Martin Gardner

"Devlin's book is hugely successful in introducing the lay reader to the real spirit of mathematics and in bringing that reader to some appreciation of the research frontier."—American Mathematical Society

"An engaging and attractive presentation of some of the principle ideas of mathematical thought. Keith Devlin has skillfully blended the old and the new."—Philip J. Davis, Brown University

"A wonderful creation, interesting in its content and beautiful in its design. I predict great success for what is probably the most visually striking mathematics book anyone has ever seen."—William Dunham, author of Journey Through Genius and The Mathematical Universe
-- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


Mathematics is more usefully understood as the study of patterns - real or imagined, visual or mental, arising from the natural world or from within the human mind. With a minimum of formulae and no elaborate formal proofs, Devlin presents mathematics as a unique human endeavour that helps us to understand the universe and ourselves.

Format: Taschenbuch
This book is a brilliant example of mathematics at it's best. It is from Scientific American, so you know you can trust it. And it is written at an understandable level, quite a feat for many very complex topics. The book features incredible illustrations, every concept is laid out in a colorful image. If you like the works of M.C. Escher, you will like this book. It has a lot of substance to it, and it will keep you busy thinking for a long time, and that's time well spent

5.0 von 5 Sternen I loved this book 3. Januar 2016
Von Alexandra Hopkins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I loved this book! Very readable. A great introduction to a number of areas of math, some of which I knew almost nothing about. Right now, I'm studying calculus using KhanAcademy.org video lessons. This book gave me a much firmer grounding in the basic concepts of calculus. It provided missing context. I didn't understand some of the math which Devlin presents; but the real point of the book is to give an overall understanding of each of several fields of math, even if some of the specific math techniques escape the reader. Lovely book and very worthwhile reading!

I've always hated math. I could get by when i memorized formulas for tests, but I never understood it.

I began a math class on college with an amazing teacher who focused on why we use formulas and what the concepts actually mean. He also helps me understand things more deeply that i thought i had understood. That teacher recommended books by Jo Boaler. ( which are also fantastic). Her books reference this book by Keith Delvin.

Now I'm hooked. His book discusses a wide range of topics and includes historical backgrounds. It brings math to life. I have no idea of someone with a strong background in math would appreciate this book, but for someone like me, who hated even the word, this book ( along with my teacher and Boaler) habe changed many life. Math is now many favorite subject.

If you want to think about math differently and get an understanding of what math really is, this is the book for you. Its well written, too. Not boring at all.

Also, i got the hardback edition, and its a really nice copy.

This is a great book and I ordered extra copies for some children in my life. It's not a child's book, but it's written in a light and non-intimidating style that it's appropriate for anyone who wants to know more about math. It certainly leaves out many topics, but the breadth is extensive and suitable.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent explanation of mathematical concepts from the past to the present 18. Januar 2014
Von Michael E. Christian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Mr. Devlin has given some of the clearest explanation of many mathematical concepts and how the fit into the continually improving of mathematical patterns to everyday concepts and problems.

His explanation of the calculus was one of the best I have read.

A bit dry ,b ut makes the case that mathematics is the science of patterns.
