 Summary
 "To many outsiders, mathematicians appear to think like computers, grimly grinding away with a strict formal logic and moving methodically  even algorithmically  from one blackandwhite deduction to another. Yet mathematicians often describe their most important breakthroughs as creative, intuitive responses to ambiguity, contradiction, and paradox. A unique examination of this lessfamiliar aspect of mathematics, How Mathematicians Think reveals that mathematics is a profoundly creative activity and not just a body of formalized rules and results."Jacket
