Explores what it's really like to do mathematics. Part of the "Art of Mentoring" series, this work tells readers what the author wishes he'd known when he was a student. It deals with the subjects ranging from the philosophical to the practical such as what mathematics is and why it's worth doing, and the relationship between logic and proof.
No-one could have written better on what being a mathematician is all about, and on what it takes to become one. A true gem. Mario Livio, author of The Golden Ratio."
