Math Curse is a wonderful book.  However, it does have problems, they are
conceptual, first of all it was not considered a work of non-fiction.
Second, it was considered as a work of art, graphic art, not a work of
literature.  It should have gone to a math specialist to look at first,
before publication.  Librarians when asked about the mistake, said it didn't
matter, it was a work of fiction.  Saying that we do ourselves and the basic
premis of our profession a disservice.

P. S. In my study of best lists last year it made more lists than any other
work of "fiction" If I remember correctly, 14.
