These thoughts signposts, directing us through a mind that applies the same scientific discipline and rigor in everyday life as needed for success in science and academia; informative and entertaining, Professor Trefethen's Index Cards is a collage of observations of rare clarity, in subjects ranging from astronomy to family life, and from music to politics.The book will be of interest not only to scientists and mathematicians, the general public interested in discerning how a scientific outlook informs the way we see broader issues in the societies we live in as well.
