2.0 étoiles sur 5 Not terribly useful 28 octobre 2013
Par Michael J. Edelman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Below title of this tiny (5" square) paperback it says "200 Key Concepts Explained in an Instant," and on the back cover, it claims to be "The quickest possible way to learn about everything from prime numbers to polynomial equations." What it actually contains, largely, are brief dictionary definitions that really do nothing to explain concepts. If you know enough math to understand the definitions,you really don't need this book.

Example: The section on vector functions begins "Vectors whose components are functions, describing a relationship between two or more variables, are vector functions. To study these relationships, the components can be differentiated or integrated like real functions."

Now that's perfectly clear IF you already know what a function is, what a vector is, what the components of a vector are, what differentiation is, and what integration is. And if you know all these things, you've probably already had a basic introduction to vector functions.

There are a few simple introductory pieces on the number line, what a square and a square root are, and the kinds of different triangles, and then it jumps into topics like homologies, the fundamental theorem of algebra, set theory, symmetries and so forth. As a reference for students of math, it's far too sketchy, and as an introduction to mathematical concepts for non-mathematicians it's far too opaque. There are better books for both groups of readers.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An enjoyable little book 30 octobre 2013
Par Aaron C. Brown - Publié sur Amazon.com
Like the other reviewers, I got this from Amazon Vine instead of the advertised Math in 100 Key Breakthroughs. However unlike them, I enjoyed this book. I understand the criticisms that it is too superficial for a mathematician and too obscure for someone with no mathematical training, but I think it fills a useful intermediate niche.

Each of the 200 2-page spreads (usually words on one page, illustration on the other) is interesting in its own right with mathematical, historical and visual information skillfully intertwined. I found that the level was just right to remind me of ideas, sort of like looking through pictures you took on a vacation in order to relive it. In a few cases, it inspired me to dive a bit deeper.

How does this compare to browsing through Wolfram? It's not as detailed, and of course you don't have the hyperlinks. But it's more fun, due to the high quality presentation and editing, and you can do it without electricity (during the daytime, anyway, or by candlelight at night). I carried it around for a few days and read some pages while waiting for the subway and during boring meetings. I found it entertaining, stimulating and a bit educational. I recommend it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting assortment, but only for the interested 2 décembre 2013
Par J. Leeman - Publié sur Amazon.com
First I will say that I really enjoyed this little book. That being said I am an avid reader of math texts, math history, etc so the subject matter was immediately interesting to me. I am slightly worried that the average reader that was looking for some quick facts may feel a bit overwhelmed at times. Unlike many books of this style, this volume is meant to be read straight through, with concepts building on previous topics. This is necessary by the nature of math, but don't expect to turn to a random page and fully grasp it unless you've had some formal math training.

The tone of the book is generally light and easy to read. Occasionally the proofy language of rigorous math drifts in, but is easy to follow and meant to get the reader thinking mathematically. It's very hard to cram so much information into short 2-page blurbs, so some things fall through the cracks. This book starts at the beginning (numbers) and goes into fields such as combinatorics that most people won't know anything about at first. Overall if you are interested in mathematics and want to expand your math knowledge, trivia, and vocabulary this is a fun and quick read.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 This is basically a useless miniature dictionary of math terms 29 octobre 2013
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
I just received this book in error (the correct Amazon Vine title I was supposed to receive was "Math in 100 Key Breakthroughs"). I have no idea what the quality of the "100 breakthroughs" book is, because I haven't gotten it, but the author is different from this "Maths in Minutes" book.

Don't waste ANY money on this book! All it is, is a rather poorly written miniature "dictionary of math", and is useless for most people, whether they're interested in math or not. It claims to "explain" 200 key concepts in math, in an instant, but it is not an explanation of any math concept. It is merely a 5" x 5" (by 1 inch thick) dictionary, describing (not really explaining) math terms, and absolutely nothing more.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Bathroom reading for math geeks 30 décembre 2013
Par Knits in Tardis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Does that sound insulting? I promise that it is only defensive, as I live as the sole outsider in a household of math geeks. (Darn that lib'ral arts education!) This is a fun book, if it's more or less your area of interest. For the rest of us, it gets to be pretty rough slogging after page 90 or so (of 400 some total), even considering that the topics are all just a few (tiny) pages in length. For me, if I ever am forced to retake high school calculus -- which would have to be due to some unforseeable and really utterly unfathomable twist of fate -- I'll be grabbing this book as an extended cheat sheet. But not as a primary source -- it's definitely Cliff Notes.

So, not entirely a fit for math-adverse-ish pragmatists, or those who would wish to learn mathematical concepts in detail. That said, if you've already started shopping for next Xmas, this one's worth considering as a stocking stuffer for your favorite math geek.
