Enjoyable book by Stanford mathematics professor and NPR commentator, Keith Devlin, about mathematics and the then hit TV series Numb3rs. Although some of the math went right by me, Devlin is very good at explaining complex subject matter to the lay person. The discussions about prime numbers and encryption were especially interesting and I only wish there were updates to this book, which is 11 years old.
