I don't rate something 5***** stars easily. I mean what's beyond 5? Today I found a book for which a 5 star rating is simply too low. The book is extremely:

- different

- relevant

- interactive ( even more so than some math 'websites' )

- challenging

- fun.

If there is a book which I ever rated as a 5***** it must be Concrete Mathematics from Graham, Knuth and Patashnik. Polynomials, that's how it's called, is like that but much more coherent. It is a * * * * * * rating, to me anyway. Must have, must read, can't wait, buy now.

Oh, eh, it is out of print, sorry. Not for sale. ;-)
