Math 1001 by Prof Elwes. It just opens up math possibilities to me and starts me dreaming of becoming a mathematician someday.

Favourite book?
It changes with my age and what I am reading at the time.
When I was a little guy, my favourite book was the Little Red Hen, ( something like that ), honing my imagination.
Then it was the Hardy Boys series of books, with their excellence in solving mysteries.
When I read war and Peace, that one was excellent.

Reminds me of the quote from Woody Allen:
I took a speed reading course and read 'War and Peace' in twenty minutes. It involves Russia.
