Reviews

I suspect the craft behind this fun book will only really come to light as we attempt to tell Barrow's stories to our friends. Suddenly, we will realize how much effort Barrow has expended in explaining difficult things simply.--Simon Ings
John Barrow's wonderfully informative book should charm both lovers and haters of mathematics.--Sheldon Lee Glashow, Boston University, Nobel Laureate
