Reviews

Wallace is the perfect parachute buddy for a free fall into the mathematical and metaphysical abyss that is infinity.--Dennis Lim
Everything and More is, in nearly every way, a gift. It's a thoughtful and witty 300-page testimonial to the qualities I never fully understood that mathematics possessed: Math is astonishing and full of 'shadowlands, ' and--ultimately--stunning beauty.--Anthony Doerr
[Wallace] brings to his task a refreshingly conversational style as well as a surprisingly authoritative command of mathematics...A success.--John Allen Paulos
All the grace of pure mathematics without the parts that make me want to bang my head against the wall.--Daniel Handler
Shockingly readable...a brilliant antidote both to boring math textbooks and to pop-culture math books that emphasize the discoverer over the discovery.
