Abstract

This is a review of the book “Beautiful, Simple, Exact, Crazy” written by Apoorva Khare and Anna Lachowska. The authors write in the preface that this book arose out of an introductory course called Mathematics in the Real World which they co-designed (and taught at Stanford and Yale University, respectively). The target audience of that course consisted mainly of undergraduates of humanities and social sciences – students whose principal interests lay outside of mathematics and the sciences.
