      The basics of Euclid's Elements, Eratosthenes' calculation of the circumference of the Earth, Archimedes' find that the volume of a sphere is two-thirds that of the smallest cylinder containing it, toppling dominoes, the infinite staircase and much more: this little book delves into some of the most famous theorems and shows us the beautiful world of mathematical proof. Quod erat demonstrandum, indeed.

      This is the best math book I have ever read! Probably the only math book I have ever read, unless you count Douglas Hofstadter's I am a Strange Loop, which was more about consciousness and mathematics.QED was a cool read, but I will be rereading it, or finding another cool math book next time I get the urge.Every sorcerer needs this book, or one like it.

      I should have turned one more page at my list sitting; it was the beginning of the first appendix. All done! This is a tiny, very short book, with lots of pictures, but still took me a little while to get through, as I tried to pick apart the math behind, and descriptions of the visual proofs. I think I'll peek back in from time to time, as I didn't completely follow everything.

      This wooden book series is great. This is my favorite because I love visual and auditory patterns that mix together with mathmatics. It all started wtih the Golden Braid and since then, I keep looking for books that tie everything together.

    5. Vilém Zouhar

      Short and easily apprehendable. It was exactly what I expected it to be and hence I wasn't dissapointed. I really admire the ability of the author of being descriptive and brief at the same time. Pity is that every proof was geometrical, which sometimes felt like it was a bit forced.

      There are a few proofs, just browsing, that went totally over my head. But I love these Wooden Books! The drawings are simple, elegant, yet detailed. The paper is nice and thick. They're short, but pack a whollup of information. Fun, fun, fun!
