I've gotten some questions asking whether people who don't have a Kindle can read my book. The answer is most definitely yes! The Kindle App is free and there is a version for basically any device. My own physical Kindle mostly just collects dust, but I am an avid user of the app on the Android phone. You do need either a Kindle or the Kindle App to read the book, but IMHO the app is the next generation of reading anyway, so I encourage you to get it with or without What is Math.
My long-in-the-works book What is Math is now available on Kindle! It contains prettymuch everything I have to say about math, cognition and language, as well as awesome historical context and personal anecdotes. If you've enjoyed this blog or are interested in the human side of math, then I encourage you to check it out.
Having spent most of my life working with math in one form or another, I am convinced that curious people of all backgrounds could benefit from a novel take on the subject. There are a lot of mis-conceptions out there, in everybody from laymen to professional math researchers. Even if you don't end up agreeing with my thesis, the book covers a fascinating range of topics, and I think there will be something new and exciting for everyone.
As always I would love to hear any questions or feedback you might have. Thank you all!
This blog features a series of mini-essays about the history and nature of math, and how it fits into the spectrum of human activity. I'm considering putting them together into a book, so comments are encouraged!
