I know two different people that read books on math for fun. They find them absolutely fascinating and engrossing. Knowing you and how smart you are, you're probably finding the collaborative efforts of a bunch of Russians as a big treat.

It's good. Translation definitely could have been better. I don't know if the translator was bad in Polish or (and?) Russian, or didn't know anything about mathematical terminology, but it's the biggest detriment to the book. Reading more than a section at a time gets me the feeling you would likely get after hours of reading Wikipedia in Simple English. That's with what I'm dealing here.

Almost makes me wish I actually stuck with learning Russian. Almost.

    how smart you are

It feels like a mockery after the night I had, but thank you.
