Reviews

"Aczel does a superb job...A mathematical bonbon of a book."
"Aczel maps the strange, beautiful byways of modern mathematical thought in ways the layperson can grasp."
"It employs a staggering range of abstract devices, which Mr. Aczel is a dab hand at explaining: Abelian varieties, Galois representations, automorphic forms, and on and on."
