Mr. Schaefer also writes, "The Best Writing on Mathematics 2011 may not light up the fires of literature regarding the English language—the authors’ explanations of the world mathematical are clear and simple but not so simple as to lose the interest of those with greater math experience. But all the essays in this collection should be understandable to readers who have only a smattering of math experience".
