Colin Adams is an accomplished mathematician and a prolific author. For example, his book on knot theory, The Knot Book, is beautifully written. His book How to Ace Calculus, written with Abigail Thompson and Joel Hass, is a very useful text (I've used it with my own children), and it is full of humor. The present book, Riot at the Calc Exam, is a collection of humorous short essays, most of which have previously appeared in the Mathematical Intelligencer. I think the essay that gave its title to the book is the best; when I read it I laughed so much the tears rolled down my cheeks.
