"Great introduction to the subject" -

I really enjoyed this book. It could be argued that the format and cover give the feel that it is going to be a bit lightweight. Not at all, some of the subjects covered are quite complex but presented in an accessible way. This will appeal to anyone who already has an interest in Mathematics and would serve as a great introduction to the subject for anyone new to it.
