Dec 05, 1996 · The Pleasures of Counting. Non-mathematicians are unlikely to enjoy this book. Some parts were fun (Enigma, biological scaling, Einstein), and some parts were boring (anchors, convoys), but this is very likely a matter of personal taste. The level of prose is better than a well-written research paper but maybe not too much better.4.2/5.
