★★★★ (+1.01%) 🛈

A look at the profound-ness of math and why it matters. Gets a little ponderous in places, but it’s a wonderful examination of eternal rules of math which transcend numbers to logic and even philosophy. In some parts, it examines rules of logical thinking. In others, it examines how academia treats math and its scholars. Well-written and always interesting.
