Mathematics Made Difficult A Handbook for the Perplexed by Carl E. Linderholm There was a time when every bookstore displayed a selection of soporific tracts expounding the principle that mathematics could be made easy. All that is now past, and the idea that mathematics really is difficult has regained its freedom. Dr. Linderholm's pioneering opus Mathematics Made Difficult is the handbook of the new liberation. As you read the book the ability to count, let us say, begins to haze out. You are gradually coaxed deeper into the eerie landscape of central mathematics. Forgetful functions stare back at you between wild trees; arrows fly in all directions; your feet become entangled in an undergrowth of morphisms; your eyes behold the universally repelling object. Not since Alice in Wonderland has mathematical wizardry been used to such lunatic effect.
