Well, here are some things to authors of avoid when writing popular mathematicsmath:

• Avoid journalistic

• Don’t treat
• Treating the readers as mentally retarded people – it’s insulting;
• Don’t . As they say: things should be explained as simply as possible, but not simpler!
• Being afraid to challenge the readers – if they read a math book, they expect it;
• Don’t talk
• Talking to the reader from above – avoid avoiding the “old master or professor” tone: unless you are a famous mathematician, it makes you look *^&@$#;. I hope this helps. 1 [made Community Wiki] Here is my advice to authors of popular mathematics: • Avoid journalistic gullible – there is nothing worse than reading a half page empty of meaning; • Don’t treat the readers as mentally retarded people – it’s insulting; • Don’t be afraid to challenge the readers – if they read a math book, they expect it; • Don’t talk to the reader from above – avoid the “old master” or “professor” tone: unless you are a famous mathematician, it makes you look *^&@$#;
