The Basic Library List Committee suggests that undergraduate mathematics libraries consider this book for acquisition. There is, of course, no shortage of books that attempt to explain interesting mathematical ideas to laypeople, but over the years I have found that they tend to be of variable quality. It takes some skill to write a popular book that is accurate, accessible and genuinely informative. Brian Hayes has that skill, and Foolproof is one of those books.
