I think a non-math person would also enjoy this book even though some of the math was difficult. The story is more about the journey and the different connections within math rather than working out problems themselves. So you could have almost no advanced mathematical background or even no interest in math and I think this book would still draw your attention. <br /><br />I think the audience for this book would be anyone. It would be especially great for those people who claim they are not a "math person." The reading really engages you and the story of someone following there passion can relate to anyone.

I'd like to see you either add a little content, or talk about an audience for the book. (You got interested in math, but you're already a math major. Would a non-math person get that, even if you found the math difficult?)John Goldenhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/18212162438307044259noreply@blogger.com
