Mathematics for the Nonmathematician

    Does anyone have an opinion of this book? Have you studied from it? Does it cover anything even fairly in depth or is it's purpose mainly for a general overview of concepts?

    it seems to contain a lot of history, and attempts to give the idea behind a lot of different ideas in mathematics. to a mathematician like me it is rather wordy and tedious.
