- For those who want easy to understand, short descriptions... As he points out in the Introduction, Dr. Parson's objective "...was to combine the breadth of a reference book -- for example, a dictionary of science -- with the accessibility and sense of fun that you get from a piece of popular science writing." ... Whether you use the book as a reference guide or you read it cover to cover you will find the information interesting and clearly defined. Science 1001 is a useful book for older children as well as students in high school, university -- and beyond.
- [Review of hardcover edition:] Absolutely fascinating.... Dr. Elwes is brilliant at giving the reader the broad perspective, with enough details to fascinate, rather than confuse. Many of the topics cover the foundations of an area of mathematics, and others cover unsolved problems, and everything in between.... I highly recommend this book for any student considering math as their future field of study, as well as anyone who ever enjoyed studying math. For that matter, this book would also be good for anyone who finds math at all intriguing.
- [Review of hardcover edition:] Designed with the general reader and students in mind, this volume provides clear and concise explanations of mathematical concepts. It uses the simplest, jargon-free language possible to clarify such concepts as probability and statistics, discrete mathematics, logic, and analysis. Covering 1001 mathematical topics, the work covers such subjects as geometry, algebra, numbers, applied mathematics, and calculus. This is a fun resource that can make most any student find something interesting in mathematics. It is a concise, general work that can be used for browsing or for looking up specific topics in both high school and public libraries.
- [Review of hardcover edition:] Often, when one hears a scientific or mathematical reference, it usually requires a concise explanation using regular terminology. Elwes (mathematics researcher, Univ. of Leeds, England) gives us a shortcut to some of mathematics' most significant topics, doing for his subject what Paul Parsons did for science in Science 101: Absolutely Everything That Matters About Science in 1001 Bite-Sized Explanations. As in that book, concise essays about a variety of mathematical fields--numbers, algebra, geometry, logic--are arranged here by broad topics along with more specific subjects. The accessible text is written without troublesome jargon and terminology. Many of the essays contain illustrations of plots, graphs, and figures. The index makes it easy to find an essay if one is not particularly familiar with the hierarchy of mathematics. One can rarely call a mathematics book fun, but that's exactly what Elwes's book is. Appropriate for school, public, and academic collections.
