An Introduction to a mathamatician
This book attempts to answer the following questions. 1) Is mathematics a worthwhile career? 2) What being a mathematician is like. 3) What type of jobs/careers are available? The main strength of Ian Stewart’s book is the way he addresses these questions in an entertaining manner. He manages to keep his explicit advice witty and brief.
Stewart reviews mathematics from high school to daily life to post docs. He also discusses the importance of mathematic teachers and the valuable role they play. Stewart encourages women to enter the field of math. Stewarts goal is opening the door into the world of mathematics and enticing the reader inside; he accomplishes this goal.
Jason Huggins does a good job narrating the book. Huggins is from Wales. He is an actor and audiobook narrator. The book is abut five and half hours long.
