Mathematics: From the Birth of Numbers by Jan Gullberg and Peter Hilton
The book actually derives form a conversation Jan Gullberg had with his son Par who was studying engineering. Gullberg not a mathematician himself but clearly an enthusiast who seems very dedicated to the subject and its overall nature. It can be viewed as a book that offers theory and ideas rather than examples and exercises for the reader to follow. Although it can be seen as an encyclopaedia for mathematics it combines both history and mathematics trivia. An aspiring book that uses thousands of illustration and humours context but does not shy away from fundamental and historical mathematical theory.
