TFAE stands for “the following are equivalent.” This statement is fairly common in mathematical theorems. Why, you may ask? Well, there is a lot of power in being able to do something multiple ways. It gives us options to find one that can best fit our mathematical needs. A very familiar example of equivalency would be the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, it tells us we can either evaluate the integral or anti-differentiate. A less familiar example is Euclid’s propositions 5 and TFAE: A brief history of the Axiom of Choice Rebecca Miller 04/22/2017

As a Mathematician I enjoy finding nonfiction that is not too "mathy", one that makes subjects such as probability approachable to non-Mathematicians. This is the first in a series of books I've been reading for fun and research. (This one was mostly for Fun). These reviews will highlight some of the more interesting parts of the book as well as rate how approachable the book made its subject matter and how educational the books really are. The first book I am reviewing is The Improbability Books by Number - The Improbability Principle Rebecca Miller 02/17/2017

Coming in at 253 pages, this is the little book which is full of mathematical gold. Hans Magnus Enzensberger wrote The Number Devil in 1998. This was when I was 8, and in 4th grade. How did I miss this gem? I would have fallen down the mathematical rabbit hole even sooner. Disguised as a novel, the math in this book includes: Pascal's Triangle, Fibonacci Numbers, set theory, factorials, math 'tricks', and math history. It even has a brief excerpt of Russell's proof that 1+1 equals 2 (although Books by Number- The Number Devil Rebecca Miller 02/03/2017
