This book is designed to reach a wide audience. Not only is it written for readers of all ages, from young to old, but it is also targeted to those who have a dislike of maths. The aim is to show just how wonderful maths really is! This book is a compilation of 30 articles that I originally issued as a series entitled “Enjoying Maths" for the Japanese magazine Rikeieno Sugaku (“Mathematics for Science"). All articles are independent of each other and readers can move throughout the book as they please, exploring the wonder of maths as they go.
