A really helpful book on helping one visualize higher dimensions. This one goes into hypothetical spatial dimensions (after talking to a friend, I've learned how some people hypothesize higher time dimensions instead), and is a bit slow in the beginning, but it's a ball slowly beginning its rapid descent towards clarity and understanding. The annotations are kind of annoying at the beginning, but they're fine once I learned how to skip over the notes that weren't interesting. All in all a very very good book.
