The Heart of Mathematics: An invitation to effective thinking (Textbooks in Mathematical Sciences) by Edward B. Burger, Michael Starbird

The power and attractiveness of the subject of mathematics is often hidden from students who are in introductory courses. In this new, innovative overview textbook, the authors put special emphasis on the deep ideas of mathematics, and present the subject through lively and entertaining examples, anecdotes, challenges and illustrations, all of which are designed to excite the students interest. The underlying ideas include topics from number theory, infinity, geometry, topology, probability and chaos theory. Throughout the text, the authors stress that mathematics is an analytical way of thinking, one that can be brought to bear on problem solving and effective thinking in any field of study.
