Summary "Math Without Numbers is a vivid, conversational, and wholly original guide to the three main branches of abstract math--topology, analysis, and algebra--which turn out to be surprisingly easy to grasp. This book upends the conventional approach to math, inviting you to think creatively about shape and dimension, the infinite and infinitesimal, symmetries, proofs, and how these concepts all fit together. What awaits readers is a freewheeling tour of the inimitable joys and unsolved mysteries of this curiously powerful subject." --
"Math Without Numbers is an illustrated, lucidly written guide to nothing less than the three fields of inquiry at the highest level of mathematical thinking. This book is a spaceship taking you to a magical world of unerring truth and endless adventure"-- Provided by publisher.
