Mathematics made difficult

I found an interesting book.

It's hard to describe the book or assign it to a category. Let me give you two quotes from the book.
Mathematicians always strive to confuse their audiences; where there is no confusion there is no prestige.
All numbers are interesting, since the first uninteresting number would be interesting.
If you like mathematics and you are ready for some light reading while giving the impression you are reading really hard stuff then this book might be for you.

Mathematics made difficult
A handbook for the perplexed

Out of print - but download-able ;-)
( Unbelievable it is out of print in the age of Kindle, iPad and what have you. )

Welcome to The Bridge

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
