Hello, I enjoyed this podcast very much. I first encountered W. Sawyer in 1979. I had just enrolled for the Open University mathematics foundation course (M101) and there were two of his books (Mathematician’s Delight and Prelude to Mathematics) along with a Martin Gardner puzzle compilation on a list of recommended pre course reading. I still have them somewhere – I’m now turning the house upside down looking for them!
