Mathematics: All That Matters - Mike Askew

Well, no plot nor narrative to speak of since this is sort of an introduction to Mathematics. It gives an overview of the key concepts in Mathematics, and tries to portray the subject in an accessible manner by showing how we experience Mathematics in the real world, and how we arrive at certain mathematical ideas through common sense. I didn't find this particularly engaging as I more or less already know most of what is covered in the book although division by fractions and power to negative numbers are presented in interesting manners. Only recommended for those with a burgeoning interest in Mathematics; most people will either be bored with it (if you have more than a passing interest) or simply won't pick it up at all.
