The World Of Mathematics

  1. Mar 4, 2005 #1
    Hi everybody,
    I would like to hear your comments about "The World of Mathematics Vol3" by James Newman. It has many essays of famous mathematicians and much stuff is about mathematical logic,mathematical way of thinking etc. Have you found it helpful in these topics?

    The World of Mathematics won't teach you much, but it may provide background or motivation to study higher mathematics. It's an excellent anthology, and I hope you can get all four volumes, not just one.
