Q.E.D.: Beauty in Mathematical Proof by Monash University Mathematics Professor Burkard Polster. As might be expected, the emphasis is on visually oriented proofs and constructions, which are admirably illustrated, but induction and regrouping get a look-in as well. Of course a partial proof is no proof at all, but excessive rigour is the enemy of terse exposition. Polster resolves this problem neatly by including an appendix that looks at how careless proofs can fail.
