2 out of 5 stars
The main premise of this book is that everyone is capable of learning mathematics.
Pros: This book is intended for a general audience which makes it an easy read. This book can be good for people who believe they are not “math people” and could potentially help them.
Cons: Parts of this book gets away from mathematical thinking and goes into linguistic evolution which I believe takes away from the main points in the book. The author tends to repeat himself often and gets lost supporting his ideas. This book is mainly an argument on why everyone is a math person. So, if you are looking mainly for an informative book about genes or how to think like a mathematician, this isn’t for you.
