Add a CommentWho knew reading about math could be so much fun?? This is a good simple overview of some mind-bending concepts - did you know you could us a finite amount of cookie dough to make an infinite number of cookies, and that some infinities are bigger than others?

It sometimes feels like reading this book is working within one very long (and satisfying) brain-teaser.

A great book that expanded my thinking about mathematics. It got me trying to prove that the square root of 2 is irrational and I got close, which is pretty good since it was late at night and I haven't done any formal math for a long, long time.
