I'm almost done with this book. Much different than I expected.

Anyone else read it?

I read it a couple of years back, and I liked it. Did you think it was going to be a math book?

I had already heard it was a book about a boy on a small boat with a tiger.

Speaking of which...

What's the volume of a disk of bread dough with radius Z and thickness A covered with tomato sauce and cheese?
