Halmos' How to read mathematics

  1. Jan 27, 2010 #1
    Dear all,
    does anybody know where I can find this article (bibliographical references). Are there similar articles that may be interesting to read?

    Hi Goldbeetle! :smile:

    I don't think it was a book, I think it was a contribution to the 1973 Style Manual of the American Mathematical Society.

    I expect the current Style Manual is written by someone else, and that the edition with Halmos's work is out of print (but older professors may still have one! :wink:).
