I'm a non-mathematician - art and logic background - but I *love* how Mr. Mandelbrot is so explicit in his narrative. Except for some odd Greek alphabet characters and a few strange math symbols (which I'll look up), Mandelbrot makes this an exciting narrative voyage into math, through Fractals, but as he examines the common relationships of fields of math, he makes this a broader, and very enjoyable journey.
I only had high school physics, and never entered Calculus, yet the base in geometric fundamental the author uses make this material more easily comprehensible than I think the publishers realize. It really reads like a travel log narration, and I'd love to see a more fully illustrated film of the journey. (and I aspire to contribute to such an illustrated and animated edition!)
