More about 'The Nature and Growth of Modern Mathematics'

Prompted by cindygerb enjoying the front cover text and alycekat's comments, I thought I'd mention what was on the front of the book as well. It was what initially pulled me in to look at it after all.

The Nature and Growth of Modern Mathematics
by Edna E. Kramer
For the General Reader who wants to understand the fundamental science of our age.
  • A comprehensive analysis of contemporary mathematics
  • A clear exposition of the underlying concepts
  • An explanation of the most up-to-date phases
  • An introduction to the mathematicians who contributed to its development
So, while I haven't read it, it sounds like it's designed for someone who might not know math overly well but is willing and able to learn some. I'll need to find time to read it soon.

I'm curious if the line starting 'For the General Reader' comes out in small caps for anyone and if it does what version of what browser you're using. (It does for me, Firebird 0.7.)
